Ceelo Madonna

Think headliner Madonna was the highlight of Sunday night’s Super Bowl halftime show performance?

Think again.

According to ClearSpring, the most tweeted about/Facebooked/e-mailed/printed/overall social-media’s most clicked upon celeb of the night was none other than Cee Lo Green.

Cee Lo beat out not only Madonna as the most talked about on the internet during the big game, but also Kelly Clarkson, M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj.

After taking the stage dressed as a band leader and dueting with Madonna on “Express Yourself” and the grand finale, “Like a Prayer,” Cee Lo fans freaked, causing his online presence to surge to over 2,000 percent above normal—and nearly double any other Super Bowl act.

Cee Lo couldn’t be reached for comment but we have a feeling we know what he would say to his competition and haters: “Forget You.”

Check out the chart below that proves Cee Lo’s online popularity:

Hey Pal, You Screwed Yourself (GOOG)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/google-to-twitter-hey-pal-you-screwed-yourself-2012-1


Guy from ChicagoYesterday, Google announced a new, optional feature.

Users who turn the feature on will now see personalized search results that link to content from social networks.

Google called it “Search plus Your World.”

After the launch, Twitter complained, saying that Search plus Your World did not include content from Twitter.

Google responded:

We are a bit surprised by Twitter’s comments about Search plus Your World, because they chose not to renew their agreement with us last summer (http://goo.gl/chKwi), and since then we have observed their rel=nofollow instructions.

Translated into normal person English, Google is saying, “Hey Twitter, the only reason we didn’t include your content in Search plus Your World is because you asked us not to.”

Here’s what we think is going on: Google used to pay Twitter for “firehose” access to all the content on Twitter. It sounds like this summer, Google told Twitter that it would no longer like to pay for that access. Twitter – it seems – said OK, you can’t have access to that content anymore.

So who’s right and who’s wrong?

From Twitter’s perspective, you could argue that Google is trying to shake it down, telling Twitter: Give us your content for free or we’ll point all our users at Google+ instead of Twitter!

From Google’s perspective, you could argue that Twitter is trying to charge Google for access to content and complaining when Google said no thanks and made do without. If getting into “Search plus Your World” is so important to Twitter, maybe it shouldn’t charge Google for getting access to Twitter.

Treehouse Is an Elegant, Focused Online Learning Resource for Aspiring Designers and Developers [Teach Yourself]

Source: http://lifehacker.com/5857764/treehouse-teaches-you-development-and-design-elegantly-and-for-free

Treehouse Is an Elegant, Focused Online Learning Resource for Aspiring Designers and DevelopersIf you’re looking to learn some new development or design skills, Treehouse can teach your the core knowledge you need. The site offers a focused look at the basics of object oriented programming, the principals of good design, and how to make an iPhone app.

The lessons take you through your topic of choice in video form, explain everything in clear and precise terms, and award you badges as you make your way through. If you’re willing to pay extra, you’ll also get access to project videos which will take you through the process of creating real-world projects from start to finish. I’ve been meaning to improve my pathetic Objective C skills and learn to develop for iOS but had yet to come across a set of lessons I really liked. After watching a few at Treehouse I was pretty hooked. If you’ve been looking to pick up one of these valuable skills as well, their lessons are definitely worth checking out.

Note: I made an error and initially thought Treehouse was free. First, sorry for the misleading information! Second, we still think it’s pretty nice. Pricing is $25/month for basic access and $49/month for premium. (More information here.) That’s about on par with our other favorite, Lynda. Lynda offers you far more topics but Treehouse has a nice focus (and, at the moment, a more up-to-date iOS course). Sorry again that I completely missed the cost of the service, but it’s still pretty cool and worth a look if it’s within your budget.
