Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, the New Yorker and Women in Silicon Valley

Well-known New Yorker writer Ken Auletta has taken on Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in the magazine, with a largely glowing profile titled provocatively: “A Woman’s Place: Can Sheryl Sandberg Upend Silicon Valley’s Male-Dominated Culture?” My short answer is: No, she can’t. But good for anyone for trying!

Nerd Alert: Here Come Two More Google Books!

Although there have already been several big-deal books on Google already–including Ken Auletta’s “Googled,” which was bought by Hollywood for a movie–a new pair is about to debut in coming months.

While the Google film is not as juicy as the upcoming fall film about Facebook, there is plenty of opportunity to bring a little glamour to the Googleplex.

Nexus One: $174.15 in Parts, $355.85 in…er…Incidentals

If you were to build it yourself, Google’s new Nexus One superlative-phone would set you back about $174.15, according to a teardown conducted by iSuppli. That’s almost $5 less than the $179 T-Mobile is charging for the device with a two-year service plan. But its about a third of its unsubsidized price–$530.
