The days following Thanksgiving have become celebrations of their own (if you believe tearing your fellows limb from limb to obtain a bargain is worth celebrating). With that in mind we look at Black Friday’s winners and losers, examine technology trends in education, shake a disapproving finger at Yahoo for its exploitation of Flickr images, and talk a bit about the wisdom of unbundling Google search from browsers and devices.

It turns out that you can say really terrible things when surrounded by reporters and peers provided that you preface your screed with “Oh, this is off the record….” Fail to do so and people wonder why anyone would employee a person with such vile ideas. In other auto-related news, we talk about Alpine’s CarPlay plans. We wrap up with quick thoughts on why one shouldn’t make idle threats when desirous of the FCC’s good will and how a release-and-fix-later mentality is making us more distrustful.

Much as people like to choose sides based on their politics, we believe net neutrality isn’t a strict liberal/conservative battle. Rather, it’s about those who use the Internet and those who profit from that use. We additionally praise Microsoft for its free iOS Office apps, question whether Apple has pulled the trigger too quickly on its latest operating systems, and congratulate this same company on releasing former iPhone users from iMessages purgatory.
