6pm.com Pricing Mistake  —  Hey everyone - As many of you may know (and I'm sure a lot of you do not), 6pm.com is our sister site. 6pm.com is where brandaholics go for their guilt free daily fix of the brands they crave.  Every day, the site highlights discounts on products ranging up to 70% off.

Internet Store Accidentally Prices Everything $49.99, Loses $1.6 million (Updated)  —  6pm.com says it erroneously capped the price of everything in their store at $49.99 on Friday and lost $1.6 million in a matter of hours.  And someone got a $1,400 GPS system cheap.  (Or this is all viral marketing.)

When do you throw a CEO's privacy under the bus?  —  It's interesting that lots of people who really don't like Facebook's privacy don't get mad when journalists and bloggers put into public view Steve Jobs' emails to them.  —  Today I got an email from Mark Zuckerberg, CEO/founder of Facebook.
Alexander Vaughn / App Advice:
Leaked White iPhone HD Hits The Web?  —  There you go again, the rumor of a white iPhone HD started last week by some leaked spare parts is about to get much more momentum.  Indeed, the same source has now published some shots of what it claims to be the actual device.

First Look: H.264 and VP8 Compared  —  VP8 is now free, but if the quality is substandard, who cares?  Well, it turns out that the quality isn't substandard, so that's not an issue, but neither is it twice the quality of H.264 at half the bandwidth.  See for yourself.

Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
Are these cloud-based social-feed enterprise disrupters boxing in Microsoft Sharepoint?  —  SocialWok is doing some interesting stuff with the Google ecosystem.  I met up with them in the hallway at Google IO and I came away from the meeting wondering if they will stay an independent company for very long.
Thanks:scobleizer
Andrew Mager / ZDNet:
Best of TechCrunch Disrupt Hack Day Projects  —  When people hear the world “hack”, they think of something negative: a spammer or troll trying to get at your personal information.  But a hack, in the context of Hack Day, means to build something interesting in a short amount of time.
