Thanks Google–Using My Picture?


The Verge:  Google will start using your picture to sell products to friends


Google users will soon find themselves unwittingly advertising products for the company, thanks to a massive change Google is making to its terms of service. First reported by the New York Times, the change categorizes a user’s follows, comments, and +1s as “shared endorsements” for a product or service. These shared endorsements can be used to build ads across the platform, pulling in a user’s profile name and photograph to help boost the ad’s credibility.

Revamped Studio–Fox News Embraces Windows 8

Fox News - Fair & Balanced

Yesterday, Shepard Smith introduced his new Studio where he highlighted their re-worked News Desk.  The newsroom is outfitted with a number of BATS (big area touchscreens) which are 55-inch Windows 8 devices.


You can watch the 5-minute video which showcases the new studio and you will notice that the devices are Windows 8.

There were a number of blogs about this yesterday.  Here are a few that I have found:
