Stars have always enjoyed special privileges.
The best tables at restaurants, the best tickets to movies, goodness, they might have even shared girlfriends with presidents.
The endearing thing used to be, though, that people only heard about it years later, when someone like Kitty Kelley wrote about it.

Apps like Luxogram, Instaframe, and Webstagram had better watch out. Instagram is hunting down those companies that use words and logos that resemble its app and politely asking them to cease and desist.
The photo-sharing social network recently updated its brand guidelines with a revised list of dos and don'ts. Some dos include "name your product something that is unique and original to you" and "design your own app icon that represents your brand."
The don'ts list gets more specific. It includes don't "use 'Instagram,' 'IG,' 'Insta' or 'Gram' in your app … Read more

If there's a technology out there that users love, there's probably a company that doesn't want it integrated with their own services.
This week, Google admitted that it had deliberately blocked some of the functionality of Microsoft's latest attempt at a native YouTube app for Windows Phone. Google chalked up its decision to a determination that Microsoft had violated YouTube's terms of service, even after the two companies tried working together on a version of the app based on HTML5.
Sounds familiar? It should. The history of the technology industry is littered with examples of … Read more
