Have you ever wondered why pages you like or maybe even people are just never seen, even on your Recent News on Facebook?
I just found out that Facebook has been holding out on me and I didn’t even know it. It’s probably something I should know since I like to think I know a lot about this tool, but the more I find out, the more I realize I was kind of in the dark.

AOL and Yahoo were among the handful of panelists at The Future of Media event held in conjunction with Internet Week NY. Both of these companies, along with every other company represented minus one (Google), claimed they are now in the content game, in some way, shape or form. Yahoo was once synonymous with search and AOL with the ability to get online. Back when AOL started, getting online, search, and content—well, they were pretty much all the same thing.

I stumbled upon Techcrunch‘s post entitled Chrome Now Faster Than A Speeding Potato.

Sadly I read yesterday that Apple will be shutting down LaLa.com by far my favorite music site introduced to me by my good friend Pavel. There were lots of issues with the user interface of LaLa and many ways it could have been improved to make it more social and easier to connect with someone and or share thoughts on music that a connection suggested. But what I liked (and will miss) most is the fact that you could listen to an album, any album in its entirety first before buying it. After the first listening, you could only listen to a 30-second clip.

Today is the the day that Apple is making their big 2010 announcement about upcoming product releases. It’s certainly received more attention than the president’s State of the Union address, which takes place tonight, and may in fact have more viewers – online of course. What’s different this year? Well every year Apple’s announcements are a big deal and looked forward to but as most everyone knows by now, this is rumored to be the announcement of the much-hyped, yet-to-be-named Apple Tablet.
