    More cars, coffee on Seinfeld’s Web talk show Jan 2, 2014 12:00 AM
    Jerry Seinfeld loves cars. He’s fond of coffee. And, of course, he’s a comedian who loves to talk comedy. But the inspiration for his online talk show on Crackle, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” (wherein he and a fellow comedian crack wise while powered by a car and caffeine), was inspired by an episode of his eponymous 1990s sitcom. In that memorable episode, Jerry’s sad-sack pal, George, decided success might await him if he lived his failed life in the opposite manner. “That,” recalls Seinfeld in a recent interview, “gave me the idea to create a talk show that was the opposite of the typical show."

  • Facebook wants to know why you didn’t post that comment Dec 21, 2013 12:00 AM
    We spend a lot of time thinking about what to post on Facebook. Should you argue that political point your high school friend made? Do your friends really want to see yet another photo of your cat (or baby)? Most of us have, at one time or another, started writing something and then, probably wisely, changed our minds. Unfortunately, the code in your browser that powers Facebook still knows what you typed — even if you decide not to publish it. It turns out that the things you explicitly choose not to share aren’t entirely private.
