NYT: Zuckerberg ‘Visibly Uncomfortable and Sweating Profusely’ When Questioned About Privacy

The New York TimesNick Bilton says Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was “visibly uncomfortable and sweating profusely” when asked about the company’s stance on privacy yesterday at the AllThingsD conference.

Watch the above video, where you can certainly see the sweat building. Zuckerberg also removes his hoodie midway through.

Other executives and journalists in attendance didn’t give the Facebook CEO rave reviews either. What’s your take?

Apple’s Buzz Takes A Hit, But Remains Strong

The New York TimesNick Bilton asked yesterday, “Has Apple lost its cool?” Bilton referred to a number of recent issues, including the company’s response to a lost iPhone prototype, not allowing apps on its AppStore for “what seem like random reasons,” and the company’s general tone when responding to customer and media questions.

According to one survey, Apple’s “buzz” has cooled a bit, but it’s still strong.

The YouGov BrandIndex, a “daily consumer perception research service,” shows Apple has definitely lost some steam recently with the adult 18 – 34 demo, as one can see from the chart above.

The question asked of respondents to determine the buzz score is: “If you’ve heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, was it positive or negative?”

However, while Apple has dipped, it is still above many brands. By comparison, Motorola’s buzz score as of yesterday was 57.2.

The YouGov BrandIndex interviews 5,000 people each weekday from a representative US population sample. Margin of error is +/- 2%.
