Facebook Places launches in Canada. Now social networking savvy Canadians can share their location based details automatically with the application. However not all users have immediate access. Apple users can go right ahead and start sharing while Blackberry and Android users will have to wait for further development. If you phone does not have GPS capabilities you might as well skip it. The privacy commissioner is waiting to see how everything plays out before ruling on legality issues.
The Social Network movie is gaining buzz. Early reviews having this at the top of many people’s “must see” and will give viewers a look behind the scenes. I’m sure it’s going to involve Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake getting all sorts of tail in a seedy portrayal of what happens when you Internet startups suddenly get rich. Scandal, betrayal, good looking groupies, and geeks rolling in cash. Hmm, maybe I will have to see this movie.
Legal issues are still not over for Facebook. The twins who previously settled a lawsuit in 2004 are now returning to the courts to get more money. $65 million apparently isn’t enough when Facebook if valued in the billions of dollars. What? Jocks can’t come up with good ideas? Any guesses on how much Zuckerberg will settle out of court for?
So how’s your farm doing? Still rebuilding from the outage a few days ago? Databases can be pesky things when the code goes rogue. To be honest it was quite funny to see all the rage outpouring on Twitter. The withdrawal symptoms might be a thing of the future given the social networking site’s ever growing popularity. I wonder if there’s any money in starting up a rehab center?
