Digg.com is having one of its Apple fanboy days, where every other story on the Digg homepage could have been submitted by the Apple PR department.
A story published by Wired on Steve Jobs' best quotes illustrates this, making it onto the Digg homepage and racking up hundreds of diggs in next to no time. As I write, there are no less than four pro-Apple stories in the top ten of Digg's technology homepage. Wisdom of crowds, huh?
We wondered what would happen if we balanced this view with a similar piece on Macboy nemesis Bill Gates. After the jump we've culled a bunch of Bill's quotes, 36 in total, including a gem about spider monkeys.
Let the flaming begin...
The San Francisco-based site, started by former TechTV host Kevin Rose and cohort Jay Adelson, has been talking with "a number of companies, including News Corp., according to multiple sources close to the negotiations", TechCrunch reports.

But what are the success metrics of engagement marketing online? How does one measure engagement?
Launched six months ago in the UK, Sling Media’s ‘place-shifting’ devices have shaken up the TV value chain to such an extent that broadcasters, ISPs and mobile operators are all seeking deals with the firm.

Internet startup Travelistic.com - which aims to be the YouTube for travellers - launched yesterday, headed up by one-time CEO and president of MTVi.
Travelistic combines user-generated video with professionally produced programming, some of which is exclusive. The self-funded company itself plans to move into content creation, with a travel-themed 'video podcast' in the offing.
Diversion Media built the website using Ruby on Rails, harnessing the Google Maps API in the process to make it easy for users to browse videos by location, in a visual way. Users can also search for videos by tags.
All in all it looks pretty good. We spoke to CEO Nicholas Butterworth to find out a bit more...
So we’re less than two days away from our Blogging for Business event, taking place here in London this Wednesday.
There are about 10 places left, so consider this a last call.
London Underground commuters would interact using mobile phones and station-side wireless hubs under a project aiming to turn the tube transport system into a city-wide song-swapping network.
OpenStreetMap (OSM), the open source mapping project, has secured its first commercial partner by linking up with property search engine Nestoria.
The move will see Nestoria displaying OSM’s user generated maps alongside its property listings – a boost for the project as it seeks to gain popularity among third-party developers.
Fresh back from a trip to Greenland, Torsten Jacobi answers some questions about his fast-growing blog network, Creative Weblogging.
Steve Rubel pointed out the joys of FeedRaider a couple of days ago, and it is well worth taking a look.
If you want to set up a web-based RSS aggregator then it really couldn’t be simpler. It is also perfect for sharing news sources with friends and colleagues.
Last Friday I wrote a post called “Are inbound links the best way to measure a blog’s influence?”, where I challenged a study published by Edelman and Technorati.
That study ranked the top blogs in the UK by influence, but rankings were determined solely by links from other blogs. My big issue is that the quantity of links doesn’t tell you very much, not when many blogs listed in Technorati are spam blogs.
