Google Social Search Goes Live

http://mashable.com

Last week launched the social revolution for search. Microsoft’s Bing fired the first shot by announcing search deals with Twitter and Facebook and, at the Web 2.0 Summit, launching its Twitter integration. Google fired back almost immediately though, completing its own deal with Twitter and, perhaps more importantly, announcing a new feature: Social Search.

Social search, demoed at the Web 2.0 Summit by Google’s VP of Search Marissa Mayer, combines results from your friend’s blogs, Flickr (Flickr), Twitter (Twitter), FriendFeed (FriendFeed), and a wide variety of other social media sites (so long as your friends have connected their social accounts to their Google (Google) profiles) with Google’s regular search results. The feature will go live this afternoon, and can be found within Google Labs.

The experimental feature, once activated, will display relevant search results from your social circle at the bottom of the search results page. This could be travel photos from your friends, a recent blog post, a set of status updates, or other information Google pulls.

Ivanka Trump prepares for weekend wedding

http://today.msnbc.msn.com

After a whirlwind engagement of a little over three months, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's big day is almost here.

The daughter of Donald Trump and her fiancé, the publisher of the New York Observer, will tie the knot at a private ceremony at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., on Sunday.

The bride will walk down the aisle in a Vera Wang wedding gown, inspired by Grace Kelly. The 500 guests will include Regis Philbin, who will be called on to sing a song at the reception, which was planned by Preston Bailey, who also handled Donald and Melania Trump's wedding at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla.
For the bride, who turns 28 next Friday, it's been a crazy few months of wedding planning mixed in with publicity for her new book, The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.

She has kept her 400,000 Twitter followers up to speed every step of the way, beginning with the couple's July 15 engagement ("Truly the happiest day of my life!!!"). Last weekend, she tweeted a last-minute request: "Need some help picking a wedding song ... send me your thoughts!" On Oct. 22, she added, "Last dress fitting down… getting close."

Tweet What You Eat diet shames people into calorie counting

http://www.telegraph.co.uk

A new diet on Twitter dubbed Tweet What You Eat has been hailed for its effectiveness as it shames people into listing the amount of calories they have consumed each day.
The diet on Twitter is being used by celebrities including Stephen Fry, who has reportedly lost six stone in six months, and Little Britain star Matt Lucas, who says he has lost half a stone in a fortnight.

Tweet What You Eat is an online food diary that allows you to instantly enter everything you eat. The application, which already has more than 8,000 followers, has a 'CrowdCal system', a completely crowd-sourced calorie database, which fills in food entries' calorie count based on what other members have entered. It allows you to keep track of your weight to see if the diet is working while there is also a forum for dieters to discuss food.
Alex Ressi, creator of Tweet What You Eat, said: "People need to be able to share in the success and lean on others.

"I've had people write in and share stories about 20 pound, 40 pound and the most dramatic – a 70 pound weight loss using the Tweet What You Eat tool and working in conjunction with a nutritionist."

Tweet yourself thin with a Twitter diet

http://www.techwatch.co.uk

One of the latest trends on Twitter is a diet application which lets the user list the food he or she has eaten.

Tweet What You Eat is essentially a food diary that you can keep up to date with everything you consume, with calorie values provided for the foods.

The idea is that everyone can see what you’re munching, and the potential calorific damage you’re doing to your body, hence you’ll be shamed into a healthier diet.

In theory anyway, although we imagine some people will use it as a boast sheet of how many kebabs they’ve had this week.

You could also argue that the calorie values may be suspect in some cases, as they’re compiled using CrowdCal, a user-driven calorie database which isn’t guaranteed to be accurate.

However, the proof is in the pudding (or indeed not eating the pudding), and Tweet What You Eat has been used successfully by several celebrities.

Stephen Fry reportedly lost an impressive six stone in six months, and Matt Lucas dropped half a stone in two weeks. Presumably it was more effective than “Fat Fighters” anyway.

Courtney Love Goes Crazy on Activision via Twitter

http://www.aeropause.com

Recently, it was announced by Activision that they were bringing the likeness of Kurt Cobain to the Guitar Hero 5 title, which creeped me out when I read it. I mean, do we really need to see Kurt Cobain belting out Public Enemy or Elton John hits. Well, Mrs. Kurt Cobain does not think so.

As of this morning, Courtney Love has been posting on her Twitter feed all morning, railing into Activision, swearing up and down that she did not approve his likeness for the game, and that Kurt Cobain would hate Guitar Hero. While I am not totally sure who controls the Kurt Cobain estate, I would assume that Courtney Love would have some say in his matters, considering she was his spouse at the time of his death. And yes, she is threatening Activision with a lawsuit. Check the jump for some of the jucier bits, which are very hard to grab out of her stream of consciousness.
