Pinterest is a social media startup that is quite the rage at the moment, especially with women. According to Comscore (by way of TechCrunch) it went from zero to 10 million monthly unique visitors in 20 months, faster than any site ever.

Mobile Site Quick Take: Mobile Europe

New to me, but Mobile Europe has apparently been around for 14 years as a controlled circulation (meaning it’s distributed for free to industry professionals) print magazine covering the mobile telecoms industry with a euro-centric focus.
