theFind - an important trend?Hmmm... Facebook acquires social shopping site TheFind.  I'm not sure what to think about "social shopping"; I get that your friends' recommendations are important and could see this helping with task-based shopping, but ... are you going to spend much time with these services?  Not sure.

PS Facebook are big enough they can experiment; I don't think this means they're convinced, either.

Esquire: the escalating scale of drunkenness, explained.  "The thing about one drink — a glass of liquor we're talking about, hopefully a stiff pour — is that it doesn't involve enough alcohol to make anything stop working. Your eyesight, your natural grace, your moral compass — they're all left intact. Because one drink doesn't compromise anything. It enhances. You have one drink and your world becomes slightly better. The bar is a slightly better bar. Your dog is a slightly better dog. Your work is slightly more brilliant. And for that, you pay no price."  Absolutely true, I'll drink to that.
