Your next American Idol will almost certainly be Jordin Sparks.
I was all about Melinda Doolittle myself, but if Melinda had to go, I'm banking on Jordin. I like the little beatbox madman okay, especially what he did with Bon Jovi...
But c'mon, that girl is 17 years old and she can sing and this is a singing competition. Vegas has her 2-1 favored to win at last count.
In any case, it was the first season I've watched most every episode, and all silliness aside, I enjoyed it, although there are certainly some other singers who would likely still have been around if my vote counted for much. Which it doesn't.
Feed Me Seymour
While we wait with baited breath on this season's outcome, more FOG has moved in to the RSS area, with Mike Arrington and many others writing that Google is about to write a $100M check for Feedburner.
Feedburner, ya say? Who dat?
Feedburner provides distribution and "engagement services" for blogs and RSS feeds (with an emphasis on RSS).
Think of them as a vehicle for carrying ads into the RSS pipeline.
Wanna wager how long other RSS player Pheedo stands on its own after this cash gets transacted?
