Mark ‘Rizzn’ Hopkins / Mashable!:
Twitter - Public Timeline = Prologue  —  Perhaps we can call this one a de-mashup?  Automattic has apparently been recently bit by the Twitter bug (as predicted by our very own Kristen Nicole), and has become inspired by the format to create something that caters a bit towards the group blogging community, it would appear.
Allen Stern / CenterNetworks:
“Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey goodbye” Says WordPress To Twitter  —  Alright so maybe Matt Mullenweg isn't saying it yet, but you can feel it.  A new, distributed Twitter for internal groups has arrived and it's called Prologue.  Here's the net idea: if you have multiple bloggers …

Apple's $300 million gray market dilemma  —  Having stirred up a hornet's nest with his first take in the so-called missing iPhones, Bernstein Research's Apple (AAPL) specialist Toni Sacconaghi has taken a second look at the discrepancy between the number of iPhones Apple sold …

Introducing new search views  —  Introducing experimental views for search results  —  There have been a lot of recent improvements to web search, but the appearance of results themselves has been pretty constant — 10 or so web pages in a vertical list.  Frequently this is exactly the right format …
