The wisdom of the crowds turns out to be simple mob rule, as Dark Knight fans not only mod up their new favorite movie but start modding down The Godfather on IMDB. Also, we do a probably wildly inaccurate (but, we think, hilarious) T. Boone Pickens impression because plain old financial stories are just not interesting enough. Oh, and Scrabulous is now gone from Facebook. So, you know, get back to work.

Thoughts on the Cuil name.
So perhaps Steve & Co. (otherwise known as Apple, Inc.) didn’t learn their lesson the first time around. You guys remember the whole pushed-Safari debacle, right? Well, as it turns out, Apple has now pushed a MobileMe preference pane onto unsuspecting Windows users via iTunes 7.7!
Wait, what?? That’s right, they did it again! Those people just… ugh. Here’s the link to the Ars story:
Hey, Tom, Molly, and Jason
I found who the old lady is. A simple Google Image Search for Molly Wood and getting to page 7, I find her. Her name is Molly Wood. Below you’ll find more info. For Tom I found the pic's origin; Cuil got that picture from Google--click on the link. BTW here's the guys e-mail [REDACTED] he works for a car company. All this from a Google search. Amazing. I tried cuiling Jason but Cuil was down when I wrote this e-mail--darn. Love the show.
P.S. I mentioned the links in the chat room but was ignored
