New York Time iPad App…Oops!

Tweet From NetworkWorld: Many, if not most iPad subscribers have been unable to access Times articles since Friday, when an update pushed through Apple’s App Store rendered the application unable to display content. Four days is a lifetime in the digital world. Having a problem that long is not a good sign. HT @JimMacMillan

WordPress 3.2 Available!

Tweet Gershwin is available, and there are some really nice features included. My favorite new feature is one I’m using right now…full page editing that gets rid of all the superfluous litter around the post composing screen and lets you just write. No worries, some nice smooth AJAX allows the major post editing options to […]

New York Times Leveraging Twitter As A Content Database

Tweet Instead of building our own system, we asked reporters to post their updates to Twitter and use hashtags to associate each update with a race. It’s very cool that the New York Times found a way to use someone else’s platform to not only churn out updates, but also store and pull in information […]

Twitter Changing The Way It ReTweets

Tweet TechCrunch has some details of the changes we can expect to see to the mechanics of the ReTweet and even has some screen shots of how this could look on Twitter (the site): From the looks of it, this could mean some pretty big changes on Twitter. As you can see in the mock-ups […]

The Facebook/FriendFeed Marriage

Tweet Dan asked me on Facebook last night if we’d be writing something about it on NTZ. I’m not sure there’s much to say that hasn’t been covered by ReadWriteWeb. Basically, we can expect to see more of FriendFeed’s features being pulled into Facebook, even though the two will remain separate entities for now. If […]

We want Google Voice on our iPhones

Tweet Jim Voorhies calls this the best comment ever. I can’t help but agree.

Some Hilarious Stuff on AP’s DRM

Tweet The AP has released some info on its new “protection” system–not sure what exactly they are trying to protect us from. From CrunchGear: This same system, as you recall, has prevented the rise of piracy in the music and movie arenas and must be applied to the written word before the Internet fails and […]

Twitter Crackdown

Tweet Did your follow count just drop? I received an email from @tless that I’d lost 60 followers on Twitter. I’m not really phased by that, since I don’t really put much stock in how many people are following me. I mean, I want followers, but I only want quality followers who are engaging. According […]

Some Results From The Slate Experiment

Tweet We told you about this experiment at Slate a couple of days ago. The idea is to have one group of people limit themselves to the web and one group to limit themselves to newspapers. After a couple of days, who would feel better informed. Here’s a case for newspapers from one of the […]

What’s More Effective? Print or Web?

Tweet Slate is running an interesting experiment, although not exactly scientific. One group of readers will limit themselves to print media for a couple of days, and the second group will avoid newspapers and limit themselves to reading news on the web (no aggregation sites allowed). The idea is to try and figure out who […]
