http://www.google.com/reader/view/feed/http%3A%2F%2Ffeeds.feedburner.com%2FMitAdvertisingLabFutureOfAdvertisingAndAdvertisingTechnology?hl=en -- Instant price matching with your phone (this is the third positive use for my impending Blackberry I can think of--- after "help, Google Maps, I'm lost" and 24-7 wikipedia.)
