Google Checkout Rolling Out Features and Waiving Fees  —  Google seems to be pretty serious about their little PayPal killer, and is releasing a steady stream of new features that appear to be addressing merchant needs.  This is a product that we've been using steadily since launch to bill event sponsors.

Google Checkout ready to go international?  —  Since I live in Canada, purchasing or selling items on Google Checkout is not an option.  I really wanted to check out the new "email invoice" feature they just announced today, but I'm unable to sign up as a seller.

ReviewMe Creates a Currency and Marketplace for Buying Influence  —  SPONSORED BY REVIEWME  —  I'm being paid $125 to write about ReviewMe (half of what ReviewMe charges for a review on Publishing 2.0).  I would have written about ReviewMe anyway, but it's certainly nice to get paid.

PlayStation 3 vs. Xbox 360 vs. Wii  —  Well, here we are. 2006, and perhaps the last console launch of the decade.  And here they are, all decked out n' pretty.  Go ahead, debate it.  Just be nice, ok?  At the end of the day the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, they're only video game consoles, and we love our babies the same.

Harrison's PS3 Launch Day Scrap Book  —  Lord knows Ashcraft has been working his ass off in Japan over the past 24-hours hustling between stores, documenting controlled riots, picking on homeless men.  He even managed to pick up a PS3 for himself through a pre-order.
Kotaku:
360 HD-DVD Impressions  —  I'm not a video snob.  When I first got my big-ass high-def television I really wasn't that impressed.  The non HD signal looked like crap and the HD stuff looked OK, but it didn't make my eyes bleed.  I guess I heard one too many people tell me that an HD picture looks 3D.
