This week, the potential dangers of crowdsourcing a manhunt, a hacked tweet that cost economic markets billions of dollars, Twitter Music, Windows brings back the start button, Netflix‘s winning strategy, and a couple of bills in the US Congress you won’t want to ignore.
For those who have not heard, there is some craziness going on between Cablevision and ABC in New York. A failure to reach an agreement has lead to the pulling of tonight’s airing of the 82nd Academy Awards, leaving many customers infuriated and nowhere to watch.
Apparently they are working hard to reach an agreement, and it would be surprising if someone didn’t compromise to get this done somehow before the Oscars air, but there are options in a worst-case-scenario situation!
For those of you currently in the midst of this ridiculous network elementary school whine-fest, such as our leaders, Empress Eve and Dave3, you can now watch the LIVE Oscars telecast free and streaming thanks to the kind people at AP. [UPDATED – AP didn’t start their streaming for some reason; we’ve updated the embed with one from Ustream.]
At the moment, you can watch the red carpet stuff going on, and it all should zip right into the ceremony when the action begins.
Walk your own carpet (of whichever color you wish) on over to the other side to watch the live stream right now. And many thanks to AP for stepping up while these massive companies run by toddlers throw Legos at each other.
