Twitter's “Quickbar Uprising” Is Nothing: Wait Till The Ads Really Show Up  —  Some people hate Twitter's new iPhone app, and Twitter is listening: It's going to change the app slightly.  —  Which won't appease the people who hate Twitter's new iPhone app at all.

Are we witnessing YouTube's big fumble?  (UPDATE: Not tonight!)  —  UPDATE, my original post is below.  I tuned in for the Charlie Sheen show, but only about 200,000 people were in the channel at peak and the show was very boring and viewers quickly went away.  So, this won't be the “event” that proves this post's thesis right.

iPad May Be Magical.  Apps Aren't.  Here's Why.  —  It has been nearly a year since I first came in close contact with the original iPad.  It blew my mind, and since then, it has become a daily accompaniment.  I create content on my MacBook Air, but I spend a lot of time consuming content and media on the device.

AT&T to allow grandfathered unlimited iPad data plans on iPad 2, your weekend rave to continue  —  Good news, iPad 3G owners.  If you were lucky enough to snag one of those coveted unlimited data plans with your original AT&T iPad, you won't have to toss it when upgrading next week.
Jackie Cohen / All Facebook:
Angry Birds Are Flying To Facebook  —  Angry Birds has enjoyed more than 75 million downloads, so it's about time that the game developer Rovio is expanding the franchise to the Facebook.  —  The official Angry Birds page on Facebook says that the game will come to the social network in a month …
Alexia Tsotsis / TechCrunch:
‘Tweet Viewer’ Virus Spreads On Twitter  —  There is something amazing about how desperately humans want to see who has viewed their online profiles.  This desire has been taken advantage of (again) by Twitter spammers as tweets like “WOW!  You can see WHO VISITS your TWITTER profile.  That's cool! :)
MG Siegler / TechCrunch:
The App Wall  —  A couple nights ago, a friend sent me a message.  “So glad we finally have a way to talk without hanging out.”  —  He was, of course, kidding.  He sent me the message through Yobongo, a new location-based realtime chatting app that launched this week.
