Jerry Yang: “We're Done”  —  Walt Mossberg just finished interviewing Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang and President Sue Decker (my real time notes are here, see Peter Kafka's notes as well).  —  The two key topics of the interview were the failed Microsoft merger, and Yahoo's core focus as a company.

D: Zuckerberg and Sandberg On The State Of Facebook  —  This should be fun: In the last pre-dinner session at D: All Things Digital, we get Kara Swisher interviewing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg.  —  Some highlights:  — Swisher apologized for calling Zuckerberg a “toddler CEO.”
Peter Kafka / Silicon Alley Insider:
Jerry Yang: We Weren't Close To Microsoft Deal, We're Not Under Seige, Give Us Time  —  This is the definition of a defensive crouch: Explaining, over and over again, that you're not in a defensive crouch.  —  We're not sure that given the circumstances, anyone in Jerry Yang's position …
Eric Savitz / Tech Trader Daily:
D: News Corp.'s Rupert Murdoch “Mystified” By Yahoo's Failure To Do Microsoft Deal  —  For the final session at D: All Things Digital today, Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher are interviewing News Corp. (NWS) CEO Rupert Murdoch, who of course owns the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, this blog, and a lot of other things.
Dan Farber / Outside the Lines:
Zuckerberg: The end goal isn't to sell the company or IPO  —  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his new COO Sheryl Sandberg fielded questions from Kara Swisher at the D6 conference.  The pair stayed on message.  Zuckerberg has learned to simply state the company goals in answer to almost any question.

First LIVE images and videos of FULLSCREEN Android demos!  —  Google's latest Android prototype is miles improved over the versions we last saw.  Back at CES the GUI was clunky and the whole thing looked relatively primative; Google themselves asked us to keep an open mind and instead concentrate on the OS' potential.

Video: Google demos the HTC Dream at I/O conference  —  Word on the street is that Google just busted out a live demo of the oft-rumored HTC Dream doing its Android-flavored thing at the company's I/O conference in San Francisco.  Reports tell us that the device is a roughly 3-inch by 5-inch touchscreen phone with a slider keyboard.
Brian Lam / Gizmodo:
Exclusive: Dell Mini Inspiron, Their First Mini Laptop  —  I bumped into Michael Dell at All Things D after his interview, and he was nice enough to show me this laptop that he was carrying that he said no one's seen before.  It's a small form factor notebook, just like the Asus Eee and the HP 2133.

Google Gets Fancy With Google I/O TShirts.  Too Fancy  —  With all the thousands of engineers at google, you'd think someone speaks binary.  But perhaps not.  Attendees of the Google I/O conference today were given t-shirts that, presumably, were supposed to spell GOOGLEIO on the front in binary.
