VB Weekly: Twitter, space, OnLive, and other ups and downs

This week’s episode of “VB Weekly” gives context to the upcoming changes to Twitter’s API, chronicles the fall of cloud-gaming firm OnLive, takes at look at the funny stuff from Judge Koh at the Apple v. Samsung trail, and goes to space. Space!

VBWeekly: Digg dumps, Githubs gits, Ouya owns, and Nukotoys … toys?

Yes, folks its another VBWeekly, and our regular VBWeekly host Jolie O’Dell was out on assignment, so VentureBeat’s executive Editor Dylan Tweney has stepped in to take you through the stories of the week. And we have stories; running from Digg dumping itself for a bit of a loss for its investors, to Github grabbing investor money. Lots of it.  Also we replay a section of the interview we did with Yves Behar of Ouya and have a look at a pretty interesting little iPad game from Nukotoys.

VBWeekly gets a visit from the undead, which is appropriate since we’re talking Facebook

This week’s VBWeekly got a little goofy, while our anchor Jolie O’Dell was traveling to the East Coast. We hit on some serious stories, including more on the Facebook drama unfolding post IPO, and a sexual harassment lawsuit that hit venture firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers. But that was all interrupted when some undead buddies showed up to chat with GamesBeat Editor in Chief Dan “Shoe” Hsu.

VBWeekly: Megaupload, Kodak and iBooks

In this week’s installment of our weekly video show, Christopher Peri and I talk about one of the most entertaining news stories so far this year: The colorful indictment of alleged pirate content site Megaupload.com. The site’s founder, Kim Dotcom, is an amazing character, who lived large (in a New Zealand mansion surrounded by gorgeous, rare cars) and became the #1 ranked Modern Warcraft 3 player, amazingly enough. We’ll be watching this story closely to report on the allegations and Megaupload’s spirited defense.
