Review of StockTouch app

Posted by Brian Lee on February 24, 2012 in Apps

The folks at Visible Market invited me to try their new app called StockTouch, available for $4.99 in the Apple App Store. Its unique premise is that it “brings the power of data visualization and financial information together.” I myself use E-Trade not only to buy, but for research. E-Trade gets the job done for [...]

An Instagram worth a thousand words

Posted by Emilie Buckman on February 21, 2012 in Apps, Branding, Media, Social media

Some might assume that the news of Instagram’s Android debut being delayed would disappoint my nerdy, amateur photographer self.  They would be wrong.

Super Bowl ads: staff opinions

Posted by Brian Lee on February 6, 2012 in Sports, Television

BRIAN: I was really underwhelmed by this year’s Super Bowl commercials. Even without the annual build-up, the commercials by themselves were pretty dull. The Chrysler commercial with Clint Eastwood was entertaining, but all it did for me was invoke memories of GM’s “Imported from Detroit” commercial with Eminem. I did notice many spots add a [...]

With going public and another mandatory change looming in form of Timeline, it’s been a big week for Facebook.  After reading a week’s worth of news, I found this this article, about five problems it faces, that seems to reinforce my strained relationship with Facebook.
