And welcome to Ephman's RSS review today is Wednesday, December 23, 2009 currently following 99 feeds across a variety of different topics.
And one of the hottest things happening right now is Digsby making real-time ads, which is pretty cool. It seems to take trending on twitter or any of the other social networks and creates ads. It's kind of strange because what is is it? Contextual advertising is it behavioral advertising. It's sort of like a of a combination of behavioral contextual crowd sourcing type of advertising, and Ephman thinks it's a great idea. Been in the online ad business since the mid-90s in just think this is is really really cool so let's see if the people if they'll end up making some good cash out of it.
So out of Hulu. It looks like Warner music is going to be providing Hulu with music videos and you can end up going to www.hulu/muse to check this out. If you might noticed Warner actually pulled their videos, out of YouTube and now you can go to Hulu. In prior podcast Ephman a spoke about Vevo and it is a really really cool site their partnership looks like with YouTube so you can be get Warner Music Videos in there.
This is one of the most about recommend apps by envIO it's called Chorus. Well Ephman's brain is not working with him this morning his Red Bull has is not kicked in yet. But Chorus is an iPhone application that uses social data okay. Basically it has people recommend apps. This is a social iPhone app recommender. Obviously they put together their top 10 most recommended apps and then top 10 downloaded and blah blah blah blah. But the reality of the matter is it's an app recommender. A bit boring.
One of the most popular stories today let's see, what is this is? Posted from curbed.com looks like a Bushwick warehouse is turning into an artists only trailer park. Brooklyn hipsters are just as bad as the Meatpacking clip clop club. They're making trailer parks trendy. Okay and let's just lay it down on the line. There ain't nothing trendy about a trailer park. Unless of course you want to get out of the trailer park and that's trendy. It's about $600 a month and you can have your little spot in heaven. A warehouse in Bushwick New York.
One of the most important things actually is out of Formula One. Huge, huge news in the Formula One world Schumacher is coming back that is true it is official. Here is Mercedes's official statement on Schumacher MercedesGP has released. They confirmed today that former Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher and will be making his racing return in 2010 with the silver arrows team. Ephman thinks there's a good side to Michael returning in a bad side to Michael's return. He made Formula One so boring during the 90s that it was a nightmare to watch. “Why am I even watching this race?” Ephman would say. He'd always win. So anyways, Ephman doesn't think that's been a happen this time. But that it'll be nice to see him see what happens. See if he actually has a chance here. Don't know how much he's getting paid. Don't expect he's getting paid a huge amount of money. But with Jenson Button leaving BranGP, it just opened up the door for Michael's return. Especially since he was looking on coming back last season.
A 40 year old air sample has been found. Okay so would anybody actually breath that air? It's the holy grail of air. This Australian filled his scuba tanks 40 years ago and kept it. Why he never used it who know? Testing is going to happen on the air and see what kind of greenhouse gases in dioxide methane chlorofluorocarbons are in it. And compare that to the air we are currently breathing. So it's actually the oldest known source of air from the Southern Hemisphere that has been saved.

Here's something from the Toronto Blue Jays. Roy Halladay took out a full-page ad in a Toronto newspaper thanking fans. He was traded earlier in the month to Philadelphia. He's been with the Toronto Blue Jay's since 1995. He's arguably the best right-hander in major league baseball. collided is not to be going up against the Toronto Maple Leafs. “Toronto will forever have a special place in my heart. The memories will last a lifetime and so will my gratitude” Right back at you Halladay. You're just such a such an immense force in Toronto and loved by everybody. Let's just hope you don't turn out like Tiger Woods.
