Shu-Lip for iPod shuffle third-generation

Shu-Lip is the first Apple-developed accessory for the third-generation iPod shuffle. Designed as an alternative to Apple's iPod shuffle USB Cable, Shu-Lip is an aluminum USB dock for the shuffle with a standard full-sized USB plug on one end, and a shuffle-specific headphone port power and sync adapter on the other. With a slightly larger radius than the shuffle, it may be a tight fit for some computers' USB ports, but looks pretty nice, assuming you're willing to pay nearly Apple pricing for a simple USB connector.

Microsoft's 2nd Laptop Hunters commercial: Giampaulo buys an HP HDX

Two week ago, Microsoft put out an ad about a lady(lauren an actress) who wanted to buy a 17″ laptop for under $1,000. Not finding a Mac for that price, she quipped “I’m just not cool enough to be a Mac person“.
And now the second Microsoft's Laptop Hunters commercials went live, get ready for Giampaulo, who professes to be "technically-savvy" and calls the MacBook Pro looks "so sexy," but ultimately rejects it because he wants to pay for "computing power," not the "brand."

Armed with a $1,500 budget, he walks out of Fry's with an HP HDX 16 that features a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo and NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB drive -raw numbers that would cost you $2,499 from Apple, although you'd be getting a vastly better display.

Google Want To Acquire Twitter

Google is interested in acquiring Twitter, and has had talks with the company about a deal. Google’s internal valuation, however, would value the company at a token premium above Twitter’s last round of financing valuation, around $250 million. Some Twitter insiders want the deal, but our sources say CEO Evan Williams wouldn’t sell even for $1 billion. “He may blink, but he wouldn’t do it,” said one source.

Google may also be concerned with antitrust issues around any major search-related acquisition, we’ve heard (and others have noted).

Clearly there’s a lot of posturing going on, and quite possibly some dissent in the ranks at Twitter. The company is officially stating “Our goal is to build a profitable, independent company and we’re just getting started.” Which is exactly what any company would say under any circumstances. The fact that Facebook acquisition discussions got so far last year suggests that they were open to merger discussions. But the valuation needed to get a deal done has increased dramatically since then.

Would Google pay more than $1 billion for Twitter? No idea. But there’s no way Microsoft lets a deal be negotiated without putting its bid in, too. And if these two giants see Twitter as the future of search, $1 billion is peanuts.

If you haven't update your privacy policy yet, There are privacy policy generators out there and the one I used for this site is from and one of those is SERP Rank because it is already updated with new policy required by Google.
Better do it now if you don’t want any problems when it’s time for Google to pay you.
