Happy Pi Day! Today’s brief covers Verizon’s DST fail, Foursquare’s big plans, Twitter celebrates five years, a timeline of brands who have been punk’d by social media, and more!
Here’s what caught my eye today:
1. In honor of Pi Day, math becomes music. [GOOD]
2. Foursquare’s great blog post on how far they’ve come and where they plan to go. [4SQ]
3. NYTimes interactive feature of the before/after of the tragedy in Japan. Unbelievable.. [NYTimes]
4. Someone at Verizon apparently missed the day in class when you learned “fall back, spring forward.” Verizon iPhones fell back an hour on Sunday morning, instead of moving forward an hour. Oops. heh. [Mashable]
5. The Zune has officially been killed. I didn’t even know it was still being sold! It only took Microsoft five years to come to that conclusion. [TechCrunch]
6. Users send, on average, 140 million tweets per day. No coincidence that 140 is also the number of characters available for a tweet? [TechCrunch]
7. A chronology of brands who failed on social media. [Jeremiah Owyang]
8. How happy are Americans? Apparently, not very so. [GOOD]
9. Street art of the day. It’s movable! [Daily What]
10. iPad 2 is sold out. Somehow, I’m not surprised. [Mashable]
