The social networking giant invites attendees of the Republican National Convention to snap pictures for immediate posting on their profile pages.
By Joe Deaux
In case you don't have a camera phone or a point-and-shoot at the Republican National Convention, Facebook (FB) has you covered.
The mammoth social media company has set up multiple "photo booth" kiosks around the Tampa Bay Times Forum this week that allow convention goers to snap pictures in the hallways of the venue.
The process, which immediately posts the photo to the Timelines of user Facebook pages, requires quite a few steps. Users must find one of the booths, request a lanyard and code card from a Facebook representative, sign into their Facebook accounts, punch a special code into a provided iPad, and allow an application by dwinQ to access their profiles.
On its Web site, dwinQ refers to itself as a company that can help users leverage real-world events by creating more active Facebook users, and increasing key social media performance indicators.
Ads on Google's homepage never would have happened under Mayer's watch.
That was a little over a month ago. Since then Yahoo stock has declined 6.2%. It really fell out of bed when, as the Associated Press reported, Yahoo announced it would not be passing the gains from selling Alibaba and Yahoo Japan on to shareholders, that it would invest that in the business.
Apple also plans to ask judge to triple damages to $3.15 billion.
SAN FRANCISCO -- Apple (AAPL) on Monday gave a federal judge a list of eight Samsung Electronics products it wants pulled from shelves and banned from the U.S. market, including popular Galaxy model smartphones.
U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh asked for the list after a jury in San Jose last week slammed Samsung with a $1.05 billion verdict, finding that the South Korean technology giant had "willfully" copied Apple's iPhone and iPad in creating and marketing the products. Samsung plans an appeal.
The products Apple wants out are all smartphones: Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
The decision against Samsung is likely to reform the mobile landscape.
There's always been a fine line between "flattery" and theft. After all, it's broadly understood that imitation is the best form of flattery. While that may be great with best friends who may decide to buy the same dress, in the corporate world too much flattery keeps lawyers employed.
There's no better example of this today than what has been going on between tech giants Apple (AAPL) and its suit against South Korean giant Samsung.
Bulls have become addicted to the stock. That's a good thing. For now.
If Apple (AAPL) news flies under the radar, does that mean it never happened?
Apple pulled an ad campaign that never should have seen the light of day in the first place, yet it barely made headlines.
Credit gigaom as one of the few outlets to report the news: Apple not only pulled its horrific Genius Bar-focused advertising run from television, the company removed it from its Web site and YouTube channel. Many had criticized the ads for showing customers in an unflattering light.
