Every Friday morning, I get up early to read every single page on the Internet and bring you the very best. It’s a lot of work, but I love my readers. Here’s this week’s bounty.
What do you get when you mix Kanye West’s tweets and New Yorker cartoons? This.
Are you vitamin D deficient? Probably.
The best badminton rant ever.
The most spectacular baseball catch you didn’t see.
Android sales overtake iPhone sales in the US for the first time ever. The only way for Apple to negate Android’s distribution and prevalence advantage is to get the iPhone on other carriers, fast. On all US carriers but AT&T, Android sells virtually uncontested to new customers. The best way to stop that? Have an iPhone right next to it that runs on that network.
30 Rock might be the funniest show on TV. So I’m pretty fired up for October 14th, when that episode will be performed live, according to NBC.
UAE and Saudi Arabia will block certain BlackBerry functions (e-mail, messaging and web browsing) because they can’t snoop the traffic.
Speaking of BlackBerry, RIM plans to counter Apple’s iPad with a ‘BlackPad’ in November. Good luck with that. The Storm/Storm 2 sure put a hurting on the iPhone, didn’t it? Increasingly, it seems RIM doesn’t know its core competency. Hint: it’s not media, it’s not tablets, it’s not touch UX machines. It’s messaging.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
