Review: Google's HTC Dream phone -- That's it?

By Bonnie Cha and Nicole Lee

(CNET) -- It's been a little more than a year since Google Android was announced and rumors of a little device called the HTC Dream started to leak onto the Web.

The G1 does not support stereo Bluetooth, Microsoft Exchange, or video recording.

Putting Facebook tand Twitter to work

By Steven Mollman


BANGKOK, Thailand (CNN) -- "Why can't I do this at home?"

Bringing Skype to the workplace is just one way companies are harnessing tech that has previously been used just for fun.

Employees in the office used to ponder this question about corporate technology not easily available to consumers.

Today the question, usually asked from home or a cafe, is: "Why can't I do this at work?"

www.joblish.com has had over 1,000 unique visitors. Some came & looked...others came & experimented. 76 came & registered. Not bad for a site about a new concept with a weird name.

FAS 157 and the Financial Crisis

William Isaac, FDIC chairman from 1978 to 1985 and now the chairman of a consulting firm that advises banks...rhetorically asked the participants [at a recent SEC panel on mark-to-market accounting] how the financial system could have come upon such hard times in under two years. "I gotta tell you that I can't come up with any other answer than that the accounting system is destroying too much capital, and therefore diminishing bank lending capacity by some $5 trillion," he asserted.… Continue

Does a Diversity Focus Perpetuate Racism?

"Advocates of 'diversity' are true racists in the basic meaning of the term: they see the world through colored lenses, colored by race and gender."

Read one person's thoughts here - be sure to read the comments too.

Might be tough to generate comments here on RBC - this isn't exactly the easiest topic to discuss.

Why are there still $2 ATM fees?

According to the article, now that we have a share in pretty much every bank in America (to the tune of $1,785.71per taxpayer), why are we still paying ATM fees? So many banks still aren't in tune with the reality of the market - surly help, pens that don't work at the counter, ridiculous end-of-year bonuses - even spending millions of dollars to name sports arenas; we have "Citi Field" here in NY - at $20 mil or so each year!… Continue

Beware: Spooky Social Media Premiums Lurking

Just in time for Halloween comes this frightening article from Nicholas Carlson on Silicon Alley Insider: Here Come The Pro Accounts.

In this article Nicholas confirms something I have long feared. The days of all free Social Media services are numbered.

Jobing.com Slashes Jobs Nationwide

Our wonderful friends in Phoenix have had to make the tough decision to slash jobs across the country. The one time up and coming job board with the video and blogs, plus $65 million in investments, is slowly winding down their business operations across the country with their local approach. The so-called "franchise" model of local offices is failing as the economy weakens. Gone are several Director level positions plus sales and marketing people from coast to coast.

The future is… Continue
