The Behavior Gap: Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money

The Behavior Gap: Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money

I read a review for The Behavior Gap... Would you take financial advice from a cocktail napkin sketch? Well, it depends on who is sketching. If it’s your brother-in-law, who likes to boast about how he “almost” made a killing investing in Google stock, then the advice is probably not worth the paper it’s on. But if it happens to be [...]

Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet reviews are out

Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet reviews are out

If you're thinking about getting the Fire, you have to decide not just whether you want a tablet, but what kind of tablet you want. This isn't an iPad-killer. It has the potential to do lots of things, but there are many things I have yet to see it do, and I wonder if it will get there given the lean software support. It's my impression that [...]

“Enterprise expert finder” gplus.com mistaken for Google+, stupid user hijinks ensue

I pity the moderators at gplus.com. The site is a forum for Gerson Lehrman Group, "the premier enterprise platform for connecting to experts and their insights." But countless Stupid Users trying to find Google+, the search giant's new social network offering, think Gerson Lehrman's G+ is Google+'s G+. Maybe it's just me, but I found it hilarious. [...]

Ads visible from space

Fifty years of weather have worn it down, but this image depicts the first advertisement visible from space, the Readymix logo. KFC tried to claim in 2006 that their one square mile Colonel Sanders portrait in Nevada was the “world’s first brand visible from outer space”, but the bloggers at Google Sightseeing dispelled that myth. NPR has a [...]

Those numbers look like peanuts compared to Facebook's 750 million users, many of whom check in every day. But the site is expected to double in size by [...]

A lot of people are joining because it's "new" and it's the "in thing" for the hipsters to have a Google+ invite, but let's wait a bit and see if it has any staying power, shall we?
