iPhone 4G display put under a microscope, 960 x 640 a lock?  —  You've seen it in San Jose, you've seen plenty of it in Vietnam, and now, apparently, you're seeing the iPhone 4G display waving at you from the center of Europe, namely the Czech Republic.  We haven't been able to corroborate …
Seth Weintraub / 9 to 5 Mac:
Skype 2.0 for iPhone FINALLY works over 3G! (for a fee)  —  It has been an absurdly long time coming, but today Skype released Skype 2.0 for the iPhone with the capability to make calls over 3G networks.  They've also put in some CD quality audio enhancements which seem to work pretty well according to our quick tests.

Will Apple Embrace the Web?  No.  —  I've been meaning to write this for some time, and for all the time I delayed the more poignant the point I wanted to make started to become as new news came out further solidifying my angle.  When I begun writing this article the iPad had not yet been revealed …
Rebecca MacKinnon / RConversation:
More problems in Facebookistan  —  Privacy is only one many problems eroding users' trust in Facebook.  Don't forget Facebook's inconsistent and untransparent approach to account deactivation and page takedowns.  I recently wrote about how Hong Kong democracy activists have had pages disabled or deleted with no explanation.

YouTube Wants You to Sit and Stay Awhile  —  TWO weeks ago, YouTube celebrated when the number of videos viewed daily on its site reached two billion, a milestone.  —  But it also used the occasion to express its envy of television's continuing hold on viewers: “Although the average user spends 15 minutes …

Ok Seriously, What Is Yahoo?  —  The video above shows how two public company CEOs - Yahoo's Carol Bartz and AOL's Tim Armstrong - answered the first question I asked each of them during our interviews at TechCrunch Disrupt earlier this week: “What is Yahoo/AOL?”  —  The contrast in coherence is staggering.

Healing by 2-Way Video: The Rise of Telemedicine  —  ONE day last summer, Charlie Martin felt a sharp pain in his lower back.  But he couldn't jump into his car and rush to the doctor's office or the emergency room: Mr. Martin, a crane operator, was working on an oil rig in the South China Sea off Malaysia.

Metafilter And The Russian Sex Slaves That Never Were  —  I'm part of a vocal minority in a conversation over at Metafilter that has gotten a lot of attention from other blogs, and on the websites of popular print-based publications like Newsweek and Mother Jones.

Guy Who Copied Digg Slams Digg For Copying Twitter  —  One of the founders of Reddit, a Digg-clone, openly criticized Digg founder Kevin Rose yesterday for his plans to implement “me-too” features into the new version of the service.  We consider this to be absurd and rather impolite.
Joe Wilcox / BetaNews:
Steve Ballmer IS the right man to turn around Microsoft mobile  —  The headline is my answer to the question “Is Steve Ballmer Really the Best Choice to Run Microsoft's Consumer Business?” asked by Kevin Tofel at GigaOM on May 25th.  There are several good reasons why Ballmer is the right man at the right time, but one stands out.
