Links From The Week Of 11-16-2008

It’s been one crazy week that really hasn’t left a lot of time for blogging.  That’s the awesome thing about twitter.  I can stay connected with bleeding edge, soak up the knowledge, and share some thoughts.  I’ve been collecting links all week that I thought were worth checking out.  Enjoy.

  • A man tried to pay an overdue bill with a drawing of a spider.  Yes, I’m serious.  That drawing eventually sold for $10,000 on eBay.
  • Yahoo has finally brought “Glue” to the United States.  Glue, offers up a new way to see search results.  This is a great write-up on why Glue was created and what it can offer.
  • Apple released version 2.2 of their iPhone software.  It’s supposed to address stability and battery life.  My favorite feature of the software is that Google Maps now let’s you customize your directions based on how you’ll be traveling: car, bus, or walking.
  • Google launched Search Wiki.  It let’s you customize your Google Web Search results. You can rank, remove and add notes to any result page and see those tailored results anytime you do that search while you’re logged in to your Google Account. This video does a fantastic job of explaining the tool.
  • McDonald’s, naked pictures, and a lawsuit.  Need I say more.  Click here.
  • Shaq is on twitter.  Yes, I mean it.
  • Great tweet from Barry Judge the CMO of Best Buy.
  • Further proof that IT organizations at company’s are considered painful, non-efficient, and difficult.
  • Malcolm Gladwell asks the question, is there such a thing as pure genius?
  • Neat tool, called Vitrue, for measuring the social media footprint of brands.  It has potential.  Another options is this tool.
  • The new Pepsi logo/packaging is in market.
  • Great blog post that explains the genius behind Alltop.
  • American Airlines is offering paperless check-in.  Now how about not charging me for bags.
  • I heart you Seth Godin for this post.  I won’t spoil it; just read it.
  • YouTube broadcasted live this week.  Very cool and different.  Makes me warm and tingly.
  • Talking about attacking red headed people is a hate crime in Canada; even when it’s done on Facebook.
  • These speakers are absolutely beautiful.  I want them.
