Missing stories

Missing stories: Steve Rubel says “the mainstream media” missed the story that Dell is now shipping computers with this personalized Google page set as the browser default homepage. “While the mainstream media (was) sleeping,” says Steve, the blogosphere scooped the story. However, Doc Searls says that bloggers have been yawning over a huge story to come from CES, something to do with Intel and a new acronym we’ve got to learn, Viiv. Doc predicts the same announcement, when made by Steve Jobs in a couple of days, will have people lining up to purchase a viivy new plasma display with the Apple logo outside and intel viiv stuff inside. Doc also points out that while the blogosphere is yawning and sleeping, it’s the sandwich guy at the local Wawa who is breaking the big stories.
