    V is for Viacom or Vendetta? Is it our imagination or is Viacom going out of its way to show Google just what it can't have: "Like a jilted lover flaunting a new partner in front of an ex, Viacom's recent flurry of partnerships reeks of revenge." [BusinessWeek]

  • As the World Turns, in Beta: Tape It Off The Internet (Tioti) is ready to launch. The site combines web TV, community and aggregation and aims to "index all the TV in the world ever."

Ah Sumner, we sense you are fighting a losing battle. [Guardian]

  • TMZDC a bust? Is the much talked about launch of a DC version of the Hollywood gossip website faltering before it even leaves ground? Apparently people in Washington are "far less likely than those in L.A. to sell gossip items for $100 or so." Or maybe they're all too busy chatting with Robart Novak. [WaPo]
