Tweet Follow me There are an estimated 20,000 YouTube Partners, or people who make some level of money from the production, uploading, and distribution of their own original content videos. Zennie62 is one of YouTube’s first partner channels during the first year it was established, and that’s going all the way back to April of 2008, when the application was approved. YouTube has always taken great pains to inform its partners of information on videos, and monetary performance. But the effort has grown...

Tweet Follow me Gestern bin ich auf ein interessantes Plug-In gestoßen – leider habe ich keine Ahnung, wie ich es installieren könnte. Die Idee ist aber recht gut! Es geht hierbei um die vom Autor so genannte [loveMachine] , ein Programm, dass sich in Facebook einloggt und alles, was die Freunde schreiben, “like”ed. Im Anschluss daran postet es noch seinen Score, also wie viele Posts es gemocht hat in den eigenen Status und logt sich wieder aus. Laut Facebook ist ein Like noch lange kein Kommentar,...

Tweet Follow me The hot tech news is that Facebook will hold and Initial Public Offering (IPO) in April of 2012, and that the giant social network started by Mark Zuckerberg is valued at $100 billion. The question of the day is “Is Facebook actually worth $100 billion?” The conversation on CNBC’s First Monday is that is is, and because of the sheer number of people on it, plus the number of people who think they need to be on it. Right now, Facebook has over 800 million active users, each of which...

Tweet Follow me Google recently announced that in a matter of few weeks it will retire its Google Buzz service because it didn’t live up to the company’s standards and expectations. This means that Google Buzz users can no longer create new posts on the service but its users can still access their personal files. Existing user created and shared content will be kept safe on Google profiles and can be accessed via Google Takeout for download. Considering the initial success and upcoming popularity of Google+,...

Tweet Follow me Forever 21, a fashion online and offline retailer established in Los Angeles in 1984, and that focuses on the young female adult demographic, is as of this writing benefiting from becoming a Twitter Trend on Black Friday. ‘Forever 21’ is ranked ninth, but it was as high as number three just an hour ago. The question is why did it get there and did it start deliberately because of something the retailer did? The answer is that, according to an analysis this blogger conducted using the...

Tweet Follow me For some reason Mashable, the blog about social networking and digital trends, fired it’s Editor-At-Large Ben Parr. So ends a rather long run for a young man who’s star was rising in the tech news community, and who worked hard in his assent from reporter – he was at the YouTube Partner Meetup in 2009 – to editor. Parr was also at the VidBlogger Nation dinner in San Francisco, where he claimed he was married to Hermoine Way… But something happened for Mashable to...

Tweet Follow me This was phone was presented at CES 2011 (Consumer Electronic Show) in January 2011, but at the time, was not yet out on the market. This is what I wrote: The HTC Thunderbolt has a blazing fast and bright display, plus the capability to wirelessly beam a video from the phone to a television set (that’s capable of receiving such transmissions.) It has a vast set of features that makes it head-to-head competitive with the iPhone and G2 Phone. Here are the specs: Networks: LTE 700, CDMA EvDO revA Operating...

Tweet Follow me The event that kicks off the tech season is rapidly approaching: CES 2012.

Tweet Follow me There is a lot of commotion on the Internet when it comes to potentially being censored. Countries like China and Iran censor what web sites their citizens can or cannot view. The United States may follow in the ways of those countries, and that is definitely unconstitutional with our First Amendment rights, and the Internet is supposed to be a free for all for everyone. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is a bill that is backed by many people in Congress. The Senate refers to it as Protect IP...

Tweet Follow me Cut to the chase: SOPA will invite fraudulent piracy claims and cost America millions in legal bills. The hot news of the day is the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), or a bill that has not become law, and called H.R.3261. SOPA was introduced in the United States House of Representatives on October 26, 2011 by Representative Lamar Smith [R-TX]. If SOPA passes it will make it much easier for any person to file a claim that their internet content was in some way stolen. This is already a massive problem...

Tweet Follow me Mit einem massiven Übersetzungsfehler bereits im Vorwort, startet die deutschsprachige Biografie von Steve Jobs. So hat die Truppe von Übersetzern das englische Wort „Silicon“ mit dem deutschen „Silikon“ übersetzt. Das Vorwort Walter Isaakson endet in der deutschen Ausgabe mit dem bemerkenswerten Satz: “Für Steve Jobs beginnt der Aufstieg […] in einem Tal, das gerade lernte, wie man Silikon in Gold verwandelt.“ Ich war erstaunt: Steve Jobs, war nebenberuflich Schönheitschirurg!...

Tweet Follow me At first this blogger was just going to leave the whole issue of TechCrunch Founder Michael Arrington’s statement that he “Didn’t know any black entrepreneurs” alone at one blog post. But after a series of emails, a video follow-up, the one above, was in order. And to really hammer home the point that what Michael said, and I think he knows this now, was hurtful to black entrepreneurs like me, who he does know. Now, if you’re just reading this for the first time,...

Tweet Follow me Last week, a bit of a row ensued when Tech Crunch Founder Michael Arrington appeared on a segment of a CNN special on black entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, and, under questioning by Soledad O’Brien, said “I don’t know a single black entrepreneur.” This blogger got wind of Michael’s comments because a friend, Marco Brown, a fellow black entrepreneur who started and still runs retirement software maker Flex Soft. Marco sent a message to me via Linkedin, asking for my...

Tweet Follow me It’s funny who you run into while traveling around the country, as this blogger does. In this case, I happened to sit next to an engaging and talkative man who works for Microsoft. He proceeded to tell me a lot about the company that Bill Gates built and threw in some fascinating Google info, too, along with views about blacks in Tech. Inside stuff that’s mostly of harmless interest, but still interesting nonetheless. For example… Did you kmow that Google’s largest sever...

Tweet Follow me Some really interesting tech products are being introduced as we move toward the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show. Here’s two of this for this blog: Velocomp iBike and SensoGlove Digital Golf Glove. The Velocomp iBike is described this way: … by www.iBikeDash.com, a leading sports technology company and creator of the iBike Dash CC Cycling Computer introduced today iBike Coach, which transforms your iPhone into an amazing bike computer. Available at Target and other major retailers, iBike...

Tweet Follow me More TechCrunch Disrupt observations as this blogger downloads the Local Hero app and checks out Wiki Org Charts, called “the first platform on the web that allows users to pool their business contacts and collaboratively map the relationships that exist within a company.” But what’s LocalHero? Well, Ana Baltodano, CEO and co-founder described it in 15 seconds on Tout.com: Local Hero’s a smartphone app which draws from your social network feeds to help you determine which...

Tweet Follow me As TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco goes into day two, what becomes apparent to this blogger is TechCrunch blog founder Michael Arrington’s “departure” from the blog itself is, for all practical purposes, cosmetic. The famed “argument” between Arianna Huffington and Michael never really happened according to Huffington herself. Michael’s just playing it all to look more like a spat than it really is. Even to the point of asking for a favor for an “unemployed...

Tweet Follow me The news is all over that TechCrunch Founder and Editor Michael Arrington may step down from running the blog not just to operate a new venture capital fund, but because the rumor is he was fired from AOL. What’s so weird is to read blog posts and articles that are dancing all over his grave, but forgetting that, as much as Michael may rub a lot of people the wrong way – journalists, venture capitalists, self-proclaimed former girlfriends, friends, bartenders, bloggers, politicians, and...

Tweet Follow me In a sign that Facebook’s not happy with Twitter being the “pulse of the planet”, it acquired rival social network FriendFeed today. Yes, Facebook gets all of the FriendFeed ex-Google employees. Bully for them. But what does it mean for a person like me who’s on both sites? For the answer, I checked Friend Feed’s blog. Well, to the unaided eye nothing. But then everything. Here’s my hypothesis: look for Facebook to morph into FriendFeed such that all of the...

Tweet Follow me More at Zennie62.com | Follow me on Twitter! | Get my widget! YouTube, MySpace, Metacafe, Blip.tv, Sclipo and Viddler I had the pleasure of hanging out with two of my favorite “vloggers” Irina Slutsky and Tracy Swedlow, of Geek Entertainment Television and Interactive TV Today. The idea was really just to meet at a cool cafe called “Mission Pie” on 25th and Mission in San Francisco and share ideas as friends – we all know each other already; this wasn’t our first...
