When the market fails, sometimes government steps in. That seems to be the case when it comes to choice and Apple these past 24 hours, we’ll see if it sticks.Facebook has the same issue, to my mind. And the links roll on….
Jailbreaking Your iPhone Is Now Legal (Cult of Mac) Apple didn’t say it was OK, the Gov’mint did. So how do you feel about that, Steve? I’m guessing you are PISSED.

Where in the World is Facebook Used? (RWW) An interactive map. Maybe they’ll addd “where Facebook is deleted”….
Google May Not Have Bought Yelp, But They Sure Are Trying To Own Them With Places (TC) Google is going in too many directions, and not winning in most. I am not sure about this. I plan to investigate further…

New Buzzlogic Units Let Advertisers Match Consumers With Content (ClickZ) Good idea. So good we’ve been doing it for years at FM. But this seems more automated (we’ve been doing that for less than years, more than months). Good on em. I need to write more press releases, apparently.
Don’t Blame the Content Farms (MediaShift) Amem and pass the blame somewhere else. Oh wait, perhaps that’s a mirror you need?
Today’s FM’s campaign of the day is Yahoo’s Flickr blog integration. It’s super cool.
