There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all. Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web.
- Lady Gaga's hotly anticipated 'Telephone' video with Beyoncé has, in the words of Jason Kottke, "more brands in it than Logorama." The Lady's last video was product-heavy, too -- but this time she's brought along tech giants Virgin Mobile and Polaroid (where she's now serving as creative director) to join her in this sapphic charade. Warholian pop or synergistic mishmash? Either way, entertaining. [From: Buzzfeed]
- In another amazing video, director Sam O'Hare created this brilliant, literally little movie showing Manhattan in time-lapse. His tilt-shift techniques make the city look merely pocket-sized. If a decent chunk of the Switched editorial team didn't already live here, we'd want to move with a quickness. New York never looked so adorable. [From: Kottke.org]
- The Economist's sister organization Economist Intelligence Unit has ranked the most expensive cities in a lovely infographic, with a handy comparison to the cost of living in New York. Apparently financial hard times have not hit Tokyo or Frankfurt, while Oslo was knocked down a peg from last year. In Paris they must be saying, "Quelle récession?" [From: The Economist]
- If you so happen to be one of our flush Parisian readers [Or our writer, Amar], perhaps you'd be interested in owning a small-time, middle-American television station? Owner Bud Kelley put a Muskegon, Michigan-based station up for sale on eBay for the bargain-basement price of only $700,000. Think of all the left-wing, pro-universal health care, baguette-munching propaganda you could spread! [From: Business Insider]
