Sometime between October 27th and October 28th, I thought this stuff was interesting. You might think so too!
- NBC’s Chuck takes a jab at microsoft’s zune: The Zune jab in last night's episode got a good laugh out of me.
- Who’s behind the “Wassup 2008” Obama ad? Not Budweiser.: It was all possible, Stone says, because Budweiser never owned the rights to the idea. He’d originally made it as a short film independent of the brand, and Budweiser had only leased the rights, paying a mere $37,000 for five years of use. Back then, people gave him a hard time about the low price. Now Stone, a diehard Obama supporter, says it’s more than paid off.
- What Sarah Palin Is Saying – Anil Dash: Sarah Palin has been unsurprising in her criticisms of Barack Obama's credentials and policies, fulfilling the traditional role of the vice presidential candidate being the most aggressive and pointed rhetorical attacker in a campaign. But a closer look at her deliberate use of vernacular and language reveals that she has gone far beyond any other candidate in vice presidential history in the dangerous and irresponsible implications of her attacks. She has phrased her attacks on Obama in a way that avoids accountability to the press while specifically addressing the subset of her audience who are most likely to advocate extreme actions against Obama.
