Back Of The Phone Apps: Instagram, Picplz, Path Vs. Front Of The Phone App: DailyBooth

Posted by Kenneth Hernandez on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 6:54pm

Back Of The Phone Apps: Instagram, Picplz, Path Vs. Front Of The Phone App: DailyBoothToday during the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, DailyBooth CEO Brian Pokorny took the stage to talk a bit about “picture talking” - that is, social communication through photos. apparently, Pokorny believes this is a key form of communication amongst the younger generation. But he is not the only one. Mobile photo sharing apps are getting a lot of buzz and gaining a lot of users now.

But Pokorny has an interesting perception as to why DailyBooth is different from remainder of the pack. In Pokorny's view, the hot apps like Instagram, Picplz, and Plurk are “back of the phone apps”. What he means by that is that tinheritor users chiefly use the back camera on tinheritor smartphones. But new smartphones are more and more gaining a front-facing camera too. And that is DailyBooth's wheelhouse.

Ignoring The Danger, Rep.-Elect Jeff Denham Vows To ‘completely' Vote Against Raising The Debt Ceiling

Posted by dafuhakawuc on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 6:43pm

Ignoring The Danger, Rep.-Elect Jeff Denham Vows To ‘Absolutely' Vote Against Raising The Debt CeilingOne of the first issues that Congress will take up next year is the ever-crucial vote to bring up the debt ceiling. While the national debt has been a pet cause of Tea Partiers, failing to increase our debt ceiling would likely result in a government shutdown and a worldwide economic disaster. A report from the centre for American Progress detailed the possible consequences, including a run on U.S. Treasury bonds, which "would cause the cost of U.S. debt to soar, putting even more stress on our budget," likely throwing us into a "moment, very deep, recession."

Unperturbed, numerous in the GOP are steadfast in tinheritor opposition to raising the debt ceiling. Incoming Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) is the newest member of this growing caucus. In an interview with us on Monday, Denham declared that he would "completely" vote against an increase. Rather than planning to cast a symbolic "nay" vote, Denham predicted that the GOP would be able to prevent "this next Congress [from] raising the debt ceiling":

TP: One of the first matters that Congress will take up next year is going to be the debt ceiling. Have you determined what your feelings are on how you are going to near that vote?

DENHAM: I just don't see this next Congress raising the debt ceiling. But it is surely a challenge we are going to must deal with. I mean, there is a lot of matters at play here in this lame duck session.

TP: So you think that is something that you'll probably vote against?

DENHAM: completely, yes.

Watch it:

Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), the moment-highest ranking House Republican, told reporters final month that Republicans will bring up a clean "up-or-down vote(...)

Reasonable And Balanced? Fox News Chairman Calls Obama A Failed Socialist, But Defends ‘bad' Bush

Posted by Jason Williams on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 6:12pm

Fair And Balanced? Fox News Chairman Calls Obama A Failed Socialist, But Defends ‘Poor' Bush In a wide-ranging interview with the Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz, Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes insisted that his network is indeed a valid news operation - and not the "communications arm of the Republican Party" - but at the same time, parroted his correct-wing hosts' talking points about President Obama. When Fox hosts Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck describe Obama and other progressives as dangerous, out-of-touch socialists, they are merely "reflecting reality," Ailes explained, because Obama is a Socialist:

"The president hasn't been very successful," the Fox News chairman says in a lengthy interview. "He just got kicked from Mumbai to South Korea, and he came domestic and attacked Republicans for it. He had to be told by the French and the Germans that his socialism was too far left for them to deal with." [...]

"He just has a different belief system than most Americans."

"That seems a rather loaded phrase - different belief system - even if you strongly disagree with most of Obama's policies," Kurtz famous. "It fits the view of those who are trying to paint the president as being external the leadingstream" or even un-American.

Ailes - who sipped from his "reasonable & Balanced" coffee mug during the interview - insisted that his "network is not singling out Obama for criticism but that its style 'tends to be more direct' in challenging presidents." notwithstanding, when former President Bush came up, Ailes struck a decidedly more favorable tone: "This bad guy, sitting down on his ranch luciding brush, gained a lot of respect for keeping his mouth shut. I literally never heard an Obama speech that didn't blame Bush." Ailes have to haven't have heard numerous Obama speeches.

Will China's 1999 second Bail-Out Some Valley VCs?

Posted by baziha on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 6:05pm

Will China's 1999 Moment Bail-Out Some Valley VCs?Yes, China is taking over the world. Or at least the Internet. No, this isn't like the WE'LL-ALL-BE-WORKING-FOR-JAPAN-oh-neverintellect scare of the 1980s. Why? Because China has more than 1 invoiceion people. It already represents the largest online audience in the world and is less than 30% penetrated and has Internet spending per capita that is less than one-third of the United States.

That means two matters are true that aren't normally true at the same time: it is a monster now and it is nakedly gotten started. The Internet- more than any other industry- is about building enormous, mass audiences. China wins at that. Accept it. You can not spend 15 years arguing size and eyeballs matter and not be impressed by what is happening in China correct now.

Posted by Rolefixac Suyutomasa on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 5:45pm

'I'm With Coco' Artist Mike Mitchell Stays Busy With Pop ArtMike Mitchell skyrocketed to internet fame when he made an image that ignited a movement, now cataloged in the halls of the internet as 'i am With Coco.'

In interviews with the New York Times, TMZ, and zillions of blogs (including a Q&A with us), Mitchell headed toward a fate of being forever known as the 'i am With Coco' guy.

Then Rainn Wilson's new Twitter icon popped up -- a tricky little redux of the 'Social Network' ad crusade -- and we realized Mike Mitchell had stuck at his craft all along, fashioning contemporary constructions of Captain Planet and Darkwing Duck and SpongeBob Squarepants drowning in the BP oil spill.

So we got him to share some art with us.

"This was done for the cult film themed show at Gallery 1988," Mitchell tells us of that fancy image on the left, commissioned for a Kevin Smith-hosted event in LA.

After the jump, Mitchell shares a handful of his latest pop culture imagery, numerous of which are available in print form at his new online store,
