Rants, Billion Dollar Sales, BS Moves by CBS and Travel News
The Technorati writers have been on fire lately covering a slew of recent news, ranting in our Soapbox Musings feature and in some cases, taking pot shots at major television networks.
Entertainment and Political Editor Curtis Silver does his typical Music Monday feature, focusing on the goodness over at Vimeo

Just as Continental and United work toward a seamless merger, today’s news that Southwest Airlines will acquire competitor AirTran in effect continues to reduce airline choices for travelers, and ultimately hold them hostage to the pricing and fee whims of fewer and fewer airlines.Curtis Silver is back with a pot shot at CBS:
According to the Hollywood Reporter, CBS is going back to the Twitter well to fish for television comedy ideas.
Their latest genius idea is based on the Shh... don't tell Steve twitter feed where some dude tweets idiotic statements from his moronic roommate, Steve. Tweets such as this are the highlight of that feed, "Steve, just now, yelling from our bathroom: 'Total Asparagus pee bro! Come smell!'"
You know what I smell CBS? Crap. It's pungent and permeating around the room. Everyone smells it.Finally, I take a jab at Jonathan Papelbon who seems to have single-handedly sunk the Red Sox's chance of making the playoffs:
