Why Some Business Owners Think Now Is the Time to Sell - NYTimes.comLooking back, Cyndi Finkle wishes she had sold her craft services company, Sunday Night Dinner, early in 2008 when the economy was booming. With a track record of 30 to 50 percent annual growth for each of the previous five years, it could have been a compelling transaction.

The Top 100 Websites of 2011 | PCMag.com

Top 100 Websites from PC Magazine

Top 100 Websites from PC Magazine

What makes a great website? There’s a lot that goes into one these days. Universal appeal, good design, and useful features are just the beginning of the list of essentials. They’re also the things we take into account first when we dive into evaluating sites for our yearly list of the Top 100 Websites.

Our list of Classic websites remains much the same as last year, though there are some sites that are making the list for the first time (hello, Quora!). The websites we’ve deemed our Classics have been chosen because they remain constantly useful while staying relevant to an ever-changing audience.

The Undiscovered portion of the list—new (or newish) sites that have never been on this list—seems to get a little smaller every year. (Yes, we’re picky and yes, there are a lot of crappy websites out there.) We narrowed the list for 2011 down to 39 sites. Another reason this list continues to shrink? It seems that, as we noted last year, the rise of mobile apps is cannibalizing the development of stand-alone websites for the desktop. There just aren’t as many sites that are as compelling as in past years. Now, we didn’t say none. Thankfully, there are still plenty out there. They, along with our picks for the 61 Classics make up our list of the Top 100 Websites of 2011. If you haven’t checked them out by now, you really should.

So read, explore, enjoy, and discuss. While you’re at it, recommend some more sites in our comments area for our 2012 list. It’s never too early.

Acer teases tablet with highest screen resolution yet | CES 2012: Tablets and E-book Readers – CNET Blogs

Typically, tablet screen resolutions top out at 1,280×800 pixels, but thanks to the faster speed of quad-core processors (Acer didn’t reveal which quad-core CPU the new tablet would be using), look for high-res screens like this (and even higher) to become a trend over the next year.
