Too Much Of A Good Thing

I'm not one to gossip, but did you hear the rumor that actress Jennifer Aniston broke up with musician boyfriend John Mayer because of his Twitter obsession?
According to The Telegraph, Mayer "spent hours on the networking website, despite telling her he was too busy to get in touch with her.
I like to Twitter as much as the next guy, but put down your Crackberry and show the girl a good time.
Mayer was apparently busted after explaining to Jen he didn't have time to see her, even as he Tweeted endlessly, the records of which were logged against those specific times when said musician indicated he wasn't available.
Uh, for the record, people, Twitter keeps a record of what and when you Tweet. Just in case that wasn't clear.
Perhaps Mayer could pick up his Skype phone and give Jen a call, maybe sing her a ballad or two?
Om Malik reports this AM that Skype is now the largest long-distance phone company in the globe, with cross-border traffic having grown ~41% in 2008, to some 33 billion minutes.
Maybe long distance via Skype is the next best thing to being there.
Finally, if you're in the part of the Facebook camp that hates the new redesign, Slate's take is this: get over it.
In a recent survey on Facebook itself, of over 800K users, only 5% liked the new redesign.
But Slate's Farhad Manjoo says Facebook isn't likely to relent, that most people hate most redesigns, but the users eventually grow accustomed to the new site.
Yeah, just like Jen got used to John's Twitter obsession!
