10 Things You Need To Know This Morning

Apple COO Tim Cook

Good morning! Here’s what you need to know:

  • Pictures of what look like the iPad 2’s screen have leaked.
  • Speaking of Apple, its war on Sony’s e-Reader and possibly Kindle continues.
  • Forbes has a long profile of PayPal and Facebook billionaire Peter Thiel. No new info but a good primer on his life and what he’s been up to. They don’t mention his secret investments in his “utopia” of New Zealand, though.
  • The Google-Bing spat gets nasty, with plenty of name-calling on both sides.
  • iPhone photo-sharing app Path raised a big new round of funding. Here’s why we think it can be huge.
  • David Pogue, the NYT’s star tech reviewer, tried out hot question and answer site Quora. He didn’t like it.
  • Flickr accidentally and permanently deleted a user’s account, with five years’ worth of photos. They don’t have backups.
  • Federated Media’s COO Deanna Brown takes over as CEO, Founder John Battelle becomes Executive Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer.
  • AOL just sold Surphace, a content recommendation engine. (AOL reports earnings today, which we’re covering live.)
  • BONUS: Google’s awesome Art Project lets you visit inside museums around the world on Street View.
