Twitter have confirmed on there blog that promoted tweets are coming to your timeline soon to keep the company running. Wait… before you think Twitter is going to be over flooded with banner ads and ruin your experience – Twitter have said they are doing this in a un-obtrusive way so the ads wont ruin your experience for example: By putting promoted posts in your timeline, Putting promoted Twitter users in the sidebar and Putting promoted trends in the trends box. All of these examples are the the picture below.
In my opinion I think even if Twitter is putting ads in there site this way it still annoys me a little bit but Twitter has to keep their company running so I guess they have to put ads on there site.
Today I’m going to be talking about Pokki, “The Mac App Store For Windows”
Obviously it doesn’t have all those cool apps yet!
Pokki is in your windows task bar like shown
Currently in the bar we have in order
Nut = Store
Weather = pWeather
WSJ = Wall Street Journal
Tiger + Star = Tiger Tasks
Google G = Google Search
B = Bit.Ly Link Shortener
Pokki has been growing since the beta having 15 apps in the store
- Color Picker
- Headlines (RSS)
- Living Social
- Shortly (Bit.Ly)
- Tab Searcher “music?”
- Tiger Tasks
- Tweeki (Twitter)
- Wall Street Journal
- Zeta Uploader
Stay Tuned for another post about what I have in my Pokki dock and what they do!

There has been a Facebook app on the iPhone now for a long time and it is very successful. There is really only one good app for it unlike the countless twitter clients and so forth. We all knew that an iPad app will be in the pipelines soon, but there has been coding found in the application that links to an iPad application.
Does this mean that the iPad app will be coming sooner rather than later? I hope so!
Tell me what you think! COMMENT!!!!

Today on the Google blog new information was just released on Google’s new project “Think Quarterly”
We’ve spoken to a lot of our partners about how to help them access the same insights and conversations that inform our strategies, and today we’re announcing a thought experiment for our clients called Think Quarterly.
What this is intending to do:
It’s intended to be a snapshot of what Google and other industry leaders are thinking about and inspired by today.
Our aim with Think Quarterly is to regularly tap our homegrown visionaries, as well as heads of industry, innovators and experts from around the world, to lend their insights and analyses to our partners who are seeking to navigate the ever-changing digital world. We hope you enjoy (and +1) it at ThinkWithGoogle.com/quarterly.
