Thanks for coming to our Christmas Party

Our thanks to all the party people who braved the freezing December weather to turn up to last night’s Christmas bash, hosted by Lemon Studios and E-consultancy.

Linus The Lush

Once again, certain partygoers lasted the whole eight-hour duration - until 2am - fuelled by heady combinations of Long Island Iced Teas, lagers, whisky and champagne. And whatever the hell Linus 'Night Bus' Gregoriadis was quaffing (above).

YouTube threatens to sue TechCrunch on copyright concerns

Michael Arrington at TechCrunch has been hit with a cease and desist order by lawyers acting on behalf on YouTube.

His 'crime' was to post an article advising readers how to download videos from YouTube to an iPod, or a computer’s hard drive. Arrington had checked YouTube’s terms of use before posting this, and found nothing in there to prevent this.

Or so they thought…

Borkowski PR: 'it wasn’t us what uploaded it'

When a YouTube clip featuring London-based PR firm Borkowski moving offices achieved over 10,000 views, you would be forgiven for thinking that it was a canny piece of marketing by the company.

Christmas shoppers WON'T cost UK businesses £7 billion

Employment experts suggest that the cost to business of employees surfing the net for their Christmas shopping on company time could be £7 billion this year, although frankly this research is somewhat misleading.

The prediction comes from the Employment Law Advisory Service (ELAS), which advises employers to lay down rules for staff to minimise the risk of losing hours to internet shopping.

Tough guidelines issued by Google to those who persist in using the company's name as a verb have provoked an angry reaction from users.

The search giant first got riled by the passing of its brand into common lexicon back in 2003, when it issued Word Spy proprietor Paul McFedries with a cease-and-desist letter commanding his removal of the word "google" from his site.

36 greatest Bill Gates quotes, just for Apple fanboys

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.

Bill Gates, dude...

Let the flaming begin...

Most of these activities are obvious no-go areas, though one or two amount to madness. Such as “using Linkedin”. I’m not kidding, folks. Be scared, be very scared...
