There is a new myspace-linkedin-like site up called zaadz They are still in pre-Beta mode. Honestly: pre-Beta? What exactly does that mean for me?
And this what that site is all about:
Our Mission. That’s easy. We’re gonna change the world. [...] The quick version of what we’re gonna do: build THE most inspired community of people in the world… Imagine social networking with a purpose, a community of seekers and conscious entrepreneurs circulating wisdom and inspiration and wealth and all that good stuff. Fun fun fun.
Somehow all of this sounds very ambitious. Almost too big. And like they’re playing in a competition where many other communities already gained ground.
boakes.org apparently broke the news: Steve Jobs, the incredible Steve, won an abandoned mineral mine in remote western Australia during a poker game – and has nothing better to do than to build a giant iPod ad on it.
An ad that can be seen from outer space, as even adrants reports (err, quotes). If you look on technorati, you can find lots of posts on this matter – it’s the new Apple story, apparently. OK, it’s for the 30th birthday of Apple, fair enough. They might as well go big.
Yet, according to all the blogs I read sofar, I was probably the only one not zooming in on to the iPod, but zooming out to check out the area around it.
And while I like this story a lot, I couldn’t help myself noticing, that Steve Jobs is indeed building two iPod ads rather close to each other!! I suppose one is for the iPod video while the other one is for, well, any of the other iPods. It’s not finished yet, so it’s difficult to tell.
See for yourself:
You can find it here on Google Local.
(On second throught – what if these square areas are just something unusual that australian miners … no, let the story continue.)
Viacom Starts Playing With Video Mashups reports business2blog. You can create mashups of clips from different show of their teen channel “the N”.
And of course you can email these clips to your friends. Smart as they are, they insert a little ad in the beginning.
