New Twitter Tools coming

The Twitter team must have had a Red Bull machine installed at the offices, because suddenly they’re launching new stuff left and right.

These look like some very interesting features:

1. Search – allow search via name or other profile information (location, bio, and url).

2. Gmail import – Find and invite friends from gmail.

3. Explore – a list some of the tools people can use to interact with Twitter off the site itself.

4.Twitter Blocks – “an abstract way to navigate your Twitter neighborhood or block.”

NBC to end contract with iTunes

NBC Universal, unable to come to an agreement with Apple on pricing, has decided not to renew its contract to sell digital downloads of television shows on iTunes.

Wow. Where did this come from? Is it all about money or does NBC not realize the loss they will cause to themselves? I won’t get into this issue too much, but read the article for yourself and post your comments.

Episode #47 will be late

Due to some massive computer problems and the length of time it will take to fix this problem, the latest episode in the Taylor Marek Podcast will be late. I did have everything ready before my computer crashed though, so you won’t miss anything when I post the episode.

My computer is suffering from an extreme case of BSOD’s (Blue Screen of Death) relating to driver and memory errors. It is bad enough that I had to take it into a local computer shop for repair. If you know a solution and might be able to help me, feel free to contact me.

As soon as this problem is fixed, the podcast will be back on track. Thanks for understanding.

Update: Everything is back to normal, ignore this post.

Best of…

I am thinking of making a “best of” episode for the Taylor Marek Podcast. I head of it from other podcasters and I am interested. Problem is, I don’t know what I should put in it? Maybe I should listen to a couple other best of podcast episodes and go from there. Are there any tips you can give me?

I want this to be a good “best of” episode and not one that sounds scattered. Any tips and or help would be greatly appreciated.
