Disney :Steve's new job ?

forgive the momentary pun ....
But in all probability if disney decides to go ahead with the the proposed USD 6.4 billion takeover of Pixar, then its the gonna be the iJobs who would turn out to be the single largest individual stakeholder in the mickey company .
Which obviously lead to the speculations of what happens when jobs takes over the ailing behemoth ?
I think that it would be really stupid of stevie to lose his focus ...despite having its best ever quarter, Apple is the still the niche cool company and not the rock solid consumer technology company it always wanted to be....
but anyways im sure it must have put poor jobs in quite a spot ...
wonder what one of my best friend would comment on that (ps - he wants to buy out Disney someday ....)

Pandora's Box ....

An pretty grippin tale of a droppedout musician forming a dotcom( ofcourse a music oriented one ..) lead me to pandora

wonderful mix of technology and consumer behaviour
what it does is simple ..

Can you help me discover more music that I'll like?

Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favorite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs.

We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you.
We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.

Over the past 5 years, we've carefully listened to the songs of over 10,000 different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day as we endeavor to include all the great new stuff coming out of studios, clubs and garages around the world.

It has been quite an adventure, you could say a little crazy - but now that we've created this extraordinary collection of music analysis, we think we can help be your guide as you explore your favorite parts of the music universe.

Sponsored-Organic-Paid-Included listing ...eh ?

Read this on clickz ..........
Now i dont think this is a smart idea........
the mainstay of google is a simple clear interface and the transparency........
this thing sort of fudges the things .........

Google is testing interspersing alternate listings that appear to be commercial in nature into its natural, or organic, search results.

A recent search for "on demand," for example, returned an area delineated off from natural results, occupying the above-the-fold sixth through eighth positions in the organic results area of the page. Within the clearly demarcated but unlabeled space were three listings for Comcast services.

Mike Levin, VP of Connors Communications Interactive Group, called the listings "very commercial-looking results." He claims his company has examined 50 keywords and -phrases which, when queried, delivered similar results in the same demarcated position on the page.

"We're finding results that may be an experiment in a new system of determining relevance," Levin said, "So they are taking positions 6,7 and 8 they're drawing horizontal lines and they are doing something else in that spot. Which on its own has tremendous implications for the organic search optimization field."

A Google spokesperson assured ClickZ News the results are not paid listings, saying the demarcated results are a search relevancy experiment.

Kevin Lee, executive chairman and co-founder of Did-It, says the results don't appear to be paid listing to expert eyes. He notes both the cache and the live page both show page titles consistent with the Google's representation of organic results. He also notes the URL formations looked like organic redirects.

Levin claims the re-directs indicate the results are being tracked, but not with all the code that's used to track Ad Words placements. "So it is an experiment in AdWords relevancy that changes the current page rank approach," Levin hypothesizes. Both Levin and Lee point out the move could have a potentially large impact on organic search optimization tactics.

Recipe-pod ?

A very cool idea marrying technology with a relevant brand experience :)!

A new marketing application from Kraft is leveraging the iPod phenomenon in a way that goes beyond podcasting (define). Owners of the ubiquitous device who download the company's "Greatest Hits of Summer" widget can carry a library of over 100 Kraft-inspired recipes with them wherever they go.

The download, promoted at kraftfoods.com, offers grilling ideas, desserts, and additional recipes featuring Kraft ingredients. Users can browse recipes using the iPod's scroll wheel and look up ingredients while at the grocery store.

Lets Zazzle :-) !

Kinda cool idea....but then i guess how many would actually like to get customised stuff ?
But you never know :-) !

Google rainmakers and venture capitalists John Doerr and Ram Shriram are pinning their hopes--and millions--on yet another Stanford University spin-off with a nonsensical name. Doerr and Shriram, whose early investment in search giant Google paid off in spades, have invested $16 million in Menlo Park, Calif.-based Zazzle, a 2-year-old online marketplace where people can buy and sell artwork in the form of customized gifts, T-shirts, stamps, posters and prints.
