This week, we look at some new Facebook-related changes on the cusp of their Initial Public Offering, and whether those changes are enough to keep advertisers interested after Facebook goes public. Then, to code or not to code…that is the question.

But first, the headlines…Yahoo‘s fibbing CEO Scott Thompson gets his comeuppance, and Yahoo gets an interim CEO, Pebble breaks all Kickstarter records at $10 in pledges, Apple moves away from Google Maps, Apple may offer an iPhone with a larger screen and a thinner MacBook, how Yahoo killed Flickr, Google introduces a knowledge graph, and Aaron Sorkin will script Steve Jobs‘ life.

Intel and Lenovo have partner with JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek and have launched an Exploration Sweepstakes site at boldlygo.intel.com/newfrontiers.

Visitors to the site can test their Trek knowledge, download exclusive Star Trek wallpapers, and enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win a Lenovo Y530 laptop with Intel Centrino 2 technology, in addition to other prizes.

I went to the QUIZ: Test Your Knowledge section (in the upper left corner) and somehow answered all four questions correctly (the last question will be know by any diehard Trek fan), one of which was a new fact about the USS Kelvin.
