Keep an I on our week (Runners and Riders edition)

 

Our top three articles in another shortened week were:

  1. More Reasons why iPad Sales may be less than 15 million this Quarter 
  2. Mobile Device Agnostics Lean Back and Forward  
  3. Flippin Facebook Phone 

The Facebook Phone article includes this link to the full Facebook Home Phone Presentation last week with Mark Zuckerberg very much in charge.

In addition to our very own Grand National this weekend The Webby Awards have just unveiled a new site in preparation for “the announcement of this year’s 17th Annual Webby Nominees on April 9.”

 “For the first time in the award’s 16-year history, the public can view every Webby Nominee and Winner in one visually stunning collection. The Gallery + Archive is a virtual time machine of digital history exploring the evolution of design, commerce and culture during the Web’s most transformative years”
