Warner Brothers Deal Further Decreases Netflix Value

April 4, 2010

How To: Change Your Tweetdeck Account Password

March 29, 2010

I love Tweetdeck and adopted it as my primary client on the same day I started using twitter (http://twitter.com/securityjones).  Recently I wanted to sync my “view” between my desktop and phone versions of Tweetdeck, so I created a Tweetdeck account (which is how you do that).
