  • Via the fine folks at Ranchero, there’s an AppleScript you can download from Stefan Seiz that allows you to play enclosures within NetNewsWire, rather than needing to copy files out into QuickTime. (TB)
  • While we’re on the tip parade, Nick Bradbury has published 10 more “tiny” tips for using FeedDemon. (TB)
  • As far as positive PR goes, this one’s pretty good. Tellme founder Mike McCue says that Yahoo! management shouldn’t fret about possibly becoming a Microsoft acquisition. (TB)
  • Viaspire notes that CBS has launched the Official Tournament Brackets application on Facebook. Now *that* is a perfect use of Facebook apps, IMHO. (TB)
  • Doug Karr provides a solid primer on what a new Website should contain. Sure, there are a ton of people who’ve written this up, but based on how I’ve seen random Websites crop up (and back down), it’s always good to review this kind of material. (TB)
  • Dear PR people, actually find out how to contact the blogs you’re pitching. Again.
  • Rex @ Fimoculous points to an essay, “The Charms of Wikipedia,” that provides details on just what it says. A good weekend read, especially if you’re into the whole Wikipedia thing. (TB)
