Also, somewhere, a former Times CEO is busy not caring about the fate of About.com because she has more money than any of us. Here are your Wednesday Evening Media Briefs: Read More

David Pogue lost his iPhone, and Apple has yet to send a Cuban hit squad after its captor. What do New York City’s Power Editors eat for breakfast? A new nominee for “Most Disturbing Opening Sentence, 2012″ emerges.
