Splendid Sundays Volume 36Sunday, May 02, 2010
A handful of splendid finds and interesting tidbits from around the worldwide web:
*China has awarded Youku.com, a video website, the exclusive rights to broadcast the World Cup and all related programs, which shows that online video websites ARE the new television in China. To compare, this would be like Hulu or YouTube beating out NBC, CBS, FOX or another broadcasting company for the rights to air the games.
*If you are using a version of Tweetdeck older than v0.33, it will not work after June 1st because of changes to Twitter's API. Be sure to upgrade this month.
*Do women who take their husband's last name make less money? (Thanks to Weddingbee for passing along this article.)
*5 Key Luxury Trends from McKinsey and Company
*Quotable: "Spoon feeding, in the long run, teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon." - E.M. Foster
