Michael Mahemoff (http://player.fm)
Quora. Changes that Quora recently made making it mandatory that you log in, in addition to the changes that now show notifications of what people are reading.
Mobile App Pricing. The 99 cents app pricing and the comparison that is oftentimes made between them and price of a cup of coffee. We also talk about the Gasketball App that was recently launched and although receiving 200,000 downloads has still not been a big moneymaker for the developers.
Medium. The latest work by Obvious Corp (the people who brought Twitter into the world). We talk about its incorporation of the new type of websites that mix blogging and curation.
Bubblewatch: Paymill. The new payment service that the Samwer Brothers from Germany recently launched, a clone of payment service Stripe.
