Stealing MySpace: Julia Angwin Kepler's Books - Menlo Park, CA MySpace is one of the most visited Internet destinations in America, displaying more than 40 billion webpage views per month and generating nearly $1 billion annually for Rupert Murdoch's online empire.

Windows 7: Gadgets, Stickies, Calculator, and Screenshots

techxonline says,
"This video shows off several new features in the Windows 7 Beta.
Gadgets are very similar to the ones in Vista, except that the annoying Sidebar has been removed.
Sticky Notes are similar to the Stickies which have been in Mac for years. My main gripe with this application is that you need to have it open for the stickies to remain, wasting space in your task bar.
The calculator has gotten a makeover, and taken the extremely simple application into a somewhat useful application.
The "Snipping Tool" is the tool used to take screenshots. I have long been against the print-screen key, and this is a major improvement. However, I believe that Microsoft could further improve this by using intuitive keyboard shortcuts to select a window, window element (e.g. pane, start menu), select by cropping your desktop, or take a picture of your entire desktop."
