It's the battle of the social media titans. LOL, JK. Facebook unveiled some rather interesting stuff today if you like searching among your friends for plumbers or Grateful Dead fans (you probably know who, right?) and making calls to your Facebook friends. And on the other hand, former player MySpace is letting itself be used by Justin Timberlake to launch his new album. Heck, they're probably paying him. What a gig. So what else happened that wasn't about social media? Let's have a peek.

If you're looking for an alternative, Springpad is probably the best bet.
