>”Chris Vila, Mo Koyfman, and Lockhart Steele were given two hours to prep and cook six burgers on 30-inch Weber grills, with ingredients sourced only on the East End.

Some may have called foul, seeing as Steele publishes both the Beach and Eater, but with a winning score of merely 78.6, it was clear that no entrant had truly impressed the judges. ” (NewYorkmag)>  

>”In a bid to create a stronger competitor to Apple Inc.’s market-dominating iTunes Store, Viacom Inc.’s MTV Networks is set to announce today that it is merging its online digital-music offerings into a joint venture with RealNetworks Inc., the company behind the Rhapsody subscription digital-music service, according to people familiar with the matter.” (WSJ via Paidcontent
