Loose Wires: Subtitled "Explosive news from Michael Dell"

  • Beavis: Hey this man's computers catch fire and he's having a "Fireside Chat" in the Technology Pavilion. Butthead: Huh, huh, huh. [Consumerist]
  • Valleywag's brother site Defamer is toast. [eBay]
  • A new study profiles YouTube users. The words dance, love, music and girl are among the most popular searches.

[Wall Street Journal]
  • TechCrunch blogger Mike Arrington gets a slap on the wrist from Apple regarding certain privileged confidential property and points the finger (yeah, that one) at YouTube. He manages to squeeze in a balls-to-the-wall retort at Apple, too. For that Mike, you have our respect. [TechCrunch]
  • The CEO of Zoto thinks another photo sharing site, Flickr, sucks hard. Not that he's biased or anything. [The Geek CEO]
