Wham! "Firewire" on WSJ.com's "Digits" Show: Here Comes the iPad, and When Will Twitter Make Money?

BoomTown’s plot to take over the world via honking big Skype headphones is working.

Barron’s blogger Eric Savitz and I will be appearing weekly on Fridays at 10 am PT on WSJ.com’s “Digits” daily online tech show, in a segment called “Rapid Firewire.”

Get it?

In our inaugural effort, we spouted off on the launch of the Apple (AAPL) iPad in one week, wondered whether Twitter can come up with a profit-making business plan, what will happen to Google (GOOG) and its China choice and, finally, the fate of gadget retailer Radio Shack.

The 1980s musical selection from this week, in honor of the headphones, is–natch–Wham!

Enjoy the video, and tune in next Friday:
