11 trends to watch in 2011 from @armano & @steverubel http://slidesha.re/fwQpmc

Amazon has decided to create their own Android store, with much of the same restrictions than with Apple's app store + developers will not be able to set the price of their apps. It makes no sense to me. Why would any developer buy into this? http://tcrn.ch/fNT5GM

Journalism's problem isn't the Internet or advertising; it's attitude: http://bit.ly/g8pfw

18-to-29-year-olds citing the web as main news source have nearly doubled since'07: 34% then, 65% now http://nie.mn/i77uQI

Sure, RSS Is Dead " Just Like the Web Is Dead: http://bit.ly/fUMrgX

Sales Have Slowed To A Trickle On Google's Chrome Web Store http://tcrn.ch/eX8yAp

Featured tweet today:

Nielsen has posted a fancy fact sheet about todays media universe. The highlights:

Another interesting factoid is that the average household now has 2.5 TV sets. Cloud based synching anyone?

Animators Tu+, Namroc, and Metcalf Anything have created an impressive animation using only Google Docs. It is part of the funny Google Slam, and it is absolutely stunning (and completely pointless). The document can be found here: http://goo.gl/6MJwH.
