  • MONEY TAKEOUT: New York Times finance reporter Louise Story reports on a plan by fed chief Ben Bernanke to raise interest rates.
  • TECH TAKEOUT: Yesterday, Google unveiled Buzz, a new social networking service that lets Gmail users share short status updates in much the same way they might on Twitter or Facebook. Is it the next big thing? Will it take Twitter down? Or is Google just inserting itself into another arena where it's not wanted? Fast Company tech blogger and Wired writer Cliff Kuang has used Buzz and shares his opinions.
