Apple iPad, Android Tablet, Leo Drops Google Buzz & Think Visibility (Bookmarks)

Here’s some of the cool webpages and online stuff that I’ve found whilst roaming around the Internet recently and decided to add them to my online Delicious bookmarks between 24th August 2010 and 31st August 2010:

    • Think Visibilty is nearly here – I’ve been to all these three previous conferences including the the last one, Think Visibility 3 which was definitely the best one so far, therefore I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what they come up with for this one which I’ll be attending next weekend!
    • New Twitter button and the end of tweetmeme – Interesting to read about the various different Twitter Retweet Buttons (including the new official Twitter one) that are available to us bloggers and how they vary in their counts and what other analytics that they provide – I think I’ll be switching to the Topsy retweet button soon!

    • Why Apple Shouldn’t Release A 7″ iPad Mini…Ever! – Ever since I got my Apple iPad tablet device, I’ve thought long and hard about its design and most specifically the screen size, most of the time I think that I’d prefer the iPad screen to be maybe an inch larger and have a smaller bezel – so would I be at all interested in an iPad with a smaller screen, I don’t think so, I’d rather have a slightly larger screen on a thin mobile phone, perhaps up to 4.5″ screen size. I don’t think Apple should further segment their product range when it’s really not needed.
    • Asus Eee Pad scheduled for March ’11 launch | Android Central – Well I decided to buy an Apple iPad on the release day here in the UK, it’s definitely cool having a tablet device on hand to use when it’s more convenient than a laptop or netbook, but obviously with Apple you’ve got limitations such as no Flash, so it will be interesting to see what an Android tablet can do and potentially at a cheaper price!
    • I Got My Binky Back! : LOL: The Life of Leo – Leo Laporte gets his Google Buzz working again, but has learnt his lesson of publishing content to something under his control (his blog) and then use social media to publicise it.

    That Dragons Den story is shocking yet at the same time I’m not really surprised. Would love to hear if this was a one time thing or a more common occurence..

    Yeah it’s quite shocking that if that is true how someone who has so much wealth already would treat an aspiring entrepreneur rather than than help and mentor them – that’s certainly what I would want to do if I had that kind of wealth and contacts.

    I suppose the ultimate answer will come on the next series of Dragons’ Den, will they replace him or if he’s back, will people going into the Den want to accept any of his offers now?
