  • Pakistan put up a Facebook ban over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad; a court ordered the ban lifted.
  • Blogger Jean-Louis Gassée has a great take on Microsoft’s reorg and what it means for CEO Steve Ballmer…
  • …and his co-blogger Frédéric Filloux on how ad agencies aren’t innovating because they’re too smug, something we’ve opined on before.
