John Paczkowski reads a lovely selection from Carly Fiorina’s appalling memoir, “Tough Choices”, about her clearly hostile feelings for former Compaq head Michael Capellas. The screamingly unhappy merger partner of the former Hewlett Packard chief, Capellas was named today as transaction processor First Data’s new CEO, despite the fact that Fiorina tried to strike a blow for something–though it is clearly not feminism–by calling him a horrid little girl in her book.

Here at AllThingsD.com, we try to be a whole lot nicer to the little ladies.

John also posts on the speculation on the rollout of a touchscreen iPod from Apple and Nielsen/NetRatings’ sure-to-be-controversial change in measurement criteria for Web sites.

His daily video on all this can be found here, or you can watch it below.
