  • A rumoured potential candidate is former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, although most of the tech world thinks that’s a terrible idea. 
  • Facebook had a big redesign. Here’s what you need to know →
  • Google chairman Eric Schmidt was dragged before a Senate subcommittee yesterday to say if Google is a monopoly. His answer? …Maybe! 
  • At that hearing, Yelp CEO Jeremy Stoppelman laid out a striking case why Google is a bad monopolist who wields its power badly.
  • The top angel in Silicon Valley, Ron Conway, says New York’s tech ecosystem is as strong as the Valley’s. An amazing endorsement if there ever was.
  • Apple board member Al Gore may have let slip some important info: several iPhones, not one, are coming out next month. (Or maybe he just misspoke.)
  • RIM is slashing PlayBook production. Why? Because no one’s buying them. Shocker.
  • AOL fires its Patch ad sales leaders.
  • BONUS: Meet the world’s 100 most valuable startups!
