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

  • Watch out Foursquare! You guys just passed 40 million check-ins, but Facebook just confirmed it’s coming out with a location product.¬†
  • Speaking of Facebook going to war, rumours are circulating that Zynga, maker of the blockbuster FarmVille game, could leave Facebook.
  • Check out this TED video that explains how Apple is so innovative. Like most TED videos it’s a bit flim-flammy but still interesting.
  • Speaking of Apple, they just filed for an “iTunes Live” trademark — an Apple streaming music service coming soon?
  • TechCrunch takes a look at Microsoft Spindex, an experimental social aggregator.
  • Word from Dear Leader! Steve Jobs emails to say printing will come to the iPad.
  • Relevant for your startup: the Harvard Business Review has a post up on the “Productivity Myth.” Working insane hours and not sleeping might not be good for you in the long term. Thank God it’s not a Frenchman who wrote that, otherwise the flames would never end.
  • Despite the iPad, netbook sales are still strong, according to research firm IDC.
  • The Washington Post describes what they call “the cybersecurity boom.”
  • Flight Control, the iPhone game beloved of so many, including our wife, will get an update soon, reports Pocket Gamer.
