Searcharazzi: Feisty, Feisty

My, we were a feisty bunch last week. Now that it is all out of our system, let’s look to a bit more benign gossip from the rumor mill

For the football fans out there, here’s some water cooler conversation for the off season: last week’s New York Times ran a piece on Tim Armstrong’s involvement with Bill Hambrecht’s quest to build an alternative to the NFL.

“Bill Hambrecht, you see, is starting up a professional football league. So far, he and his partner, Tim Armstrong, a senior executive at Google, have pledged $2 million each…They’ve got a name” the United Football League. And they’ve lined up a wealthy, well-known businessman as their first owner: Mark Cuban, the billionaire who owns the N.B.A.s Dallas Mavericks”

I guess that’s one way to spend your dollars.

Another way is to pick up Facebook, as John Battelle ponders. Will Yahoo! finally score a win? Or will it be another sucker punch from Google?

To wrap up the week, Amazon is rumored to be looking at Netflix, sending the latter’s stock up yesterday.
