If you’re not familiar with Kevin Thau, you ought to be: he worked on many of Twitter’s early mobile efforts, helped integrate it into major platforms and headed up the Twitter #Music app. That’s what makes his newly confirmed move to Twitter co-founder Biz Stone’s new firm, Jelly, so interesting. While little is known about Jelly beyond its plan for a decentralized service, Thau will be heading up numerous aspects of business operations at the company while it builds “world class mobile products.” We’ll have to wait awhile before we see his influence, but his presence hints that Jelly is more than just a casual project.

If you thought House of Cardinals was a spot-on spoof of Netflix’s political drama House of Cards, just wait until you see what aired Saturday at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, DC. The spoof, titled House of Nerds, brings together an ensemble cast of power players from the nation’s political and cultural power centers; “Washington and Hollywood,” Spacey says, reprising his role as the Machiavellian Frank Underwood. “Some new faces, some old faces, some new faces on old faces.” Unlike Underwood, some of those faces include Washington’s actual leaders from both sides of the aisle, including Senator John McCain, a cursing Rep. Steny Hoyer (a real House whip), White House Senor Advisor Valerie Jarrett, and others.
The Engadget Interview: Nokia’s Kevin Shields on PureView, moving sensors and the ‘missile’ that is the Lumia 920
A talk with Nokia’s Stephen Elop, as we had earlier this week, is quite an experience. He’s kind, friendly, charming and clearly remarkably enthusiastic about every little thing Nokia– but his PR deflector guards are constantly full-forward. Ask him a tough question and you’ll be greeted with a very gentle reaction that appears like a response however is really merely a deftly delivered retooling of some standard PR-friendly message you’ve probably currently heard.
Talking to Nokia SVP Kevin Shields is, as we’ve seen in the past, a rather even more … direct experience. Why did Nokia go with a gloss finish on the 920 instead of the matte we loved on the 800 and 900? “Due to the fact that it’s remarkable.” Exactly how durable is the 920? “It’s like a missile.” How positive is he that wireless charging will take off? “We are all in.” Shields was kind enough to provide us a couple of minutes of his time after Nokia’s occasion this week to speak Lumia and to describe merely what “PureView” indicates now that it’s been put on a second phone.

A lot of Canada news this week, which is why three of the four podcasters behind the mic today are from the land up north: international man of mystery Sean Cooper, Myriam Joire (yep, she’s got some Canadian blood in her) and our special guest Kevin Michaluk — also known to millions as CrackBerry Kevin. Brad Molen’s here too, and while he’s admittedly all US of A through and through, he can still say “eh” like the best of ‘em. We kid, of course, but we’re serious that we want you to join us tomorrow afternoon at 5PM ET!
Note: Oh, and there’s plenty of other stuff to talk about as well, so if RIM isn’t your schtick, you’ll probably still find it of interest. As always, send your questions to us via Twitter (@engadgetmobile) and we’ll pick some out to answer.
Facebook’s fertile ground for social experiments, and it wasn’t all that long ago that Yahoo tested the six degrees of separation theory using the site. Not to be outdone, Mark Zuckerberg’s crew, with an assist from the Laboratory for Web Algorithmics of the Universita degli Studi di Milano, has done a little digging of its own to find out just how intertwined its 721 million users really are. Turns out, instead of being six degrees away from your favorite dancing actor, you’re likely only 4.74 — which was the average distance between any two Facebook users globally. Considering that number shrinks to three when limited to relationships within your own country, and the worldwide number was at 5.28 in 2008 (and is shrinking all the time), you should be best friends with Kevin Bacon by 2020 or so. Don’t believe us? There’s plenty of statistical analysis to prove it at the source below.
Earlier this week we talked about rumors of Netflix’s venture into original content production. Today, the rumors were confirmed that Netflix had won the exclusive rights to stream 26 original episodes of House of Cards to their customers.
House of Cards will make its way into US and Canadian homes starting in late 2012. Kevin Spacey stars in the show about ruthless politics as an “ambitious politician”.
“House of Cards represents a slightly more risky approach [then Netflix's current operations]; while we arenâ€™t producing the show and donâ€™t own it, we are agreeing to license it before it is successfully produced,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.
By signing up for 26 episodes of House of Cards, Netflix will have something no one else has, and since they already deliver 61% of all digital video, it won’t be hard for people to access the show. The company says it “may” sign on more exclusive series’ in the future, too.
