What We’re Thinking About Today

John Moe May 7, 2010

So every day some of us sit around and go through tech stories that we’ve run across that we found interesting. Perhaps you’ll be interested as well.

Yahoo! will begin to move advertisers over to Microsoft’s ad platform this summer as part of the two companies’ ad partnership designed to take on Google.

Digg not dug. 10% of workforce at the social media site has been laid off. The New York Times wonders if people do their linking on social networking sites instead.

iPad to be sold in nine more countries starting 5/28. Yahoo says 10% of its iPad traffic is now coming from Europe and Asia, places where iPads aren’t presently sold. So how important is the official release date?

Finally! The ability to tell friends I’m eating a Big Mac through Facebook!

Facebook users are frustrated with privacy issues (not reeeeally news).

New Kindle update coming later this month that will let users share content more. A little more anyway.

Smart Dust! A plan to sprinkle little tiny censors all over the world to keep track of all sorts of things.

And finally, Twitter pal @wordvenus points us to the very helpful Fake Science blog, with insight like the following:
