The recent trend that has not just caught my attention but the wider audience (you guys) is the acquisition bug. Here’s an article that entails the recent and major acquisitions. Just quickly for those that love to skim read instead of clicking a link… eBay acquires Stumbleupon $75m, Google acquires Panoramio, CBS acquires Last.FM $280m and Fox acquires Photobucket and Flektor. (links all in the URL)

Australia…far away from everyone and everywhere…but still in the groove, or should I say ‘down with the 411’ LOL Here’s the top 60 web apps 2.0 in Australia. I was rather impressed and surprised at the list~

This issue has come up before, Youtube being banned in countries…here’s a list of countries + map that have banned Youtube…Victoria?? WTF?!

I covered Entropia in a previous post (link), but here’s some sweet news, Entropia’s coming to China! It says in the article also that Second Life was in the running but got pwned…lol I like the sound of Entropia better anyways…

Lifestyle Lessons

Now Guy Kawasaki’s blog –  is a blog I admire and always love to check out, here’s a great excerpt from his blog about the 9 biggest myths of the workplace. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

Being bullied? Know how to handle the bully by being in the know with the 411 (LOL sorry sorry sorry) I personally would take up kickboxing so you can pwn them like todays clip!
