Yahoo buys MyBlogLog... for real!  —  Updated: 8.58 pm: A few minutes after we had ordered our dinner at Mehfil Restaurant in San Francisco's SOMA district, Scott Rafer, chairman of Orlando, Florida-based MyBlogLog, checked his Blackberry Pearl, and broke into a smile.

Bloggers unite!  Yahoo! joins forces with MyBlogLog  —  There once was a time when bloggers basically lived in silos of independent existence.  Hunched over your keyboard, you checked your ego feeds every day, looked for inbound links, followed the various meme-tracking sites, and read who you thought was interesting.
Michael Arrington / TechCrunch:
Yahoo Buys MyBlogLog.  No, They Didn't.  Wait, Yes.  —  Ok so it's official and confirmed from Yahoo: They bought MyBlogLog.  This was first rumored to be happening in November, but was never confirmed and we updated our post to reflect that.  This morning the news broke again but was pulled immediately afterwards.

MWSF 2007 keynote bingo  —  I debated doing a MacWorld bingo card for a long time.  At first, I was sure I wasn't going to create one.  WWDC bingo was a cute diversion, but do I really want to commit to doing one of these for every Stevenote?  I also didn't know if people would be hungry for more bingo after WWDC's bingo bust.

1000 Shots of CES?  —  Well I think my goal of getting 1,000 shots of CES up online before heading back home to San Francisco may be tougher than I thought.  I'm here for four days, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and flying back out Thursday afternoon.  It's now almost 1 a.m. in the morning …

Apple's Next-Generation Themes  —  See, I was going to originally title this "Apple's Secret Theme Tool!!", in an effort to clutch your e-eyeballs dramatically.  (I've gotta get this here vortal to be more sticky!)  Unfortunately, a public patent filing isn't exactly "secret".
