Facebook $FB is trying to make Ads you See Truly Interesting to You $GOOG

Google long ago discovered that the way to make internet advertising effective was to make the ads something you are interested in. It took Facebook a while to even do ads as they were initially trying to build a brand, and then take that brand public. Now we see that advertising revenues are increasing, and that is in large part due to a more effective targeting of advertising.  As TechFrag pointed out, they are getting smarter about this: Whenever a user chose to hide the ad, Facebook presumed that the ad was not relevant and it should not be shown to

Finally Happened, Google Bought Waze

For those of us who use Waze many times a week, the idea that Waze could fall into the hands of Apple or Microsoft was terrifying. Okay, not terrifying.  Maybe irritating is a better word to use. Apple would have ate it up and used it inside of iOS devises only (eventually) and that would have been it for the Waze we all know and love. Microsoft – who knows what they would have done with it?  Perhaps they would have made it an integral part of Windows latest mobile attempt. That would be like killing Waze on day one.

Is this time for real? Is Waze getting acquired?

Personally, I would rather see Google get Waze than Microsoft or Apple. I think Google is the one that will not try subvert it for either pushing the ever-flopping Windows mobile devices or to push Apple’s iPhone. Google will keep it available to all devices. It is an awesome service and one that is so valuable when you are either in highly congested traffic or you’re traveling on a multi-city trip. It’s like having a peak ahead when you are on the go. I use it in the Dallas / Fort Worth area where I live as I can see

However, you do need to know up front I am likely to come in soon on this one, and it will likely be options that benefit from a downward movement in price. Let’s talk about why I see RIMM moving down: All of RIMM’s hopes and

Please Don’t Let Apple Acquire Waze!

Do you know of Waze?  If you are a user, you love it. Let me tell you what Waze is and why it is so important to keep it away from Apple. Waze seems silly at first. I installed it on an old iPhone in years past very early, then I put it on Androids the past couple of years.  I use a Galaxy S3 from Verizon, and have really only learned how important Waze is in the past six months. Waze is a combination navigation system and a social driving network. I thought it was kind of stupid at first as
