SocialRadar Uses Social Network and Location Data to Help You Navigate Who’s Nearby

I recently sat down with Michael Chasen, former co-founder/CEO of BlackBoard, at SXSW to discuss his brand new app called SocialRadar.  As may have guessed by the name of the app, SocialRadar is a social discovery app, but instead of using location and interests like other apps, SocialRadar cross references social information and data to tell you who is nearby and how you are connected to them.  The idea behind the approach taken by Chasen and his team is that you get more value this [...]

A post on TechCrunch today adds fuel to the Amazon console fire, citing sources who say that the console will be a Chromecast-style HDMI dongle, and that it will even stream PC games over the Internet.
