Target Unveils In-Store Facebook Photo Printing; All Facebook
Target has just announced Facebook connectivity with their in-store KODAK photo kiosks. Instead of bringing a USB with pre-selected photos to print out, shoppers can now log on at the kiosk and browse their photo albums directly using the new Social Network Connectivity software.
The Takeaway: Foursquare led the way, and now finding creative ways to incorporate real-time location to social media is more of a necessity. Start strategizing and expect new partnerships to exist where the lines between online communities and real world communities to be blurred.

Google In-Page Analytics Provides Visual Context for Traffic Data; Mashable
Google has announced in-page Analytics for its popular web measurement suite Google Analytics. The feature contextualizes Google Analytics data by superimposing it directly over a website.
The Takeaway: Confused about what all the data you’re looking at means? Google Analytics just got a little bit easier with these overlays which will break down the numbers you analyze data with. The overlay makes analytics more accessible to the everyday user or blogger that may want to track their own web site traffic.

Yahoo Plans to Copy Facebook Connect; Business Insider
Yahoo will roll out a log-in system similar to Facebook Connect across the web, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The Takeaway: Facebook Connect, which is on roughly 1 million sites, has a hold on the market Yahoo will be competing against. Yahoo will have to offer something substantial in order for web site administrators to consider them over Facebook. If they can do that, Yahoo Connect could be the catalyst for the turnaround in public opinion Yahoo has been aiming for for years.

New MacBook Airs are Like iPads With Keyboards; Mashable
Gone is the clunky button found at the base of previous MacBook Air models. The new versions now feature the same smooth, clickable trackpads available on every other MacBook and MacBook Pro.
The Takeaway: The new MacBook Air might be the final nail in the coffin for traditional hard drive. With a new flash drive (much like the iPad), could this new notebook be the end of the slow startup and shortened battery life?
