Once again, we join you to bid adieu to another news-filled work week.

This time around, we talk trash about the new-new Twitter, which may (or may not) upset the service’s core users with its top-to-bottom redesign.

Another note of interest: Asian giant Alibaba was partly owned (40 percent, in toto) by Yahoo. At one point, Alibaba CEO Jack Ma said he was thinking of acquiring Yahoo. Now, Alibaba is buying back that 40 percent and keeping mum about acquisition talks. Chess game or cold war?

We also touch on how the heck Skyrim is already the most played game of 2011, even though it only launched on November 11. We also chat a bit about Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Super Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong, stepping down from his current role at Nintendo.

Stay tuned for the last few seconds, when we unleash some Nerf-fueled fury on the new intern for no reason at all.

VentureBeat's mission is to be a digital town square for technical decision-makers to gain knowledge about transformative enterprise technology and transact. Discover our Briefings.
