TGIF. Here's what's going on today:

  1. Fortune is profiling a bunch of the world's most powerful women. One to read is on Sheryl Sandberg, and how she's not your typical No. 2 at Facebook. Another is on Katie Stanton, the woman in charge of spreading Twitter around the world.
  2. Apple is looking to poach Blackberry workers who are getting fired.
  3. Mark Zuckerberg just bought four houses surrounding his current home near Palo Alto, which cost him more than $30 million. 
  4. Facebook is removing the option to be unsearchable by name on the social network, so even private people can be found.
  5. If you're a consumer startup* looking for a Series A investment, don't knock on Andreessen Horowitz's door. 
  6. A large chunk of the younger generation says it only or mostly watches online videos over broadcast TV. 
  7. Here's why Twitter's so obsessed with TV partnerships.
  8. You wanted a gold iPhone? Maybe don't bother.
  9. Fab's web traffic has taken a massive blow over the past year. Zulily's has soared.
  10. A 20-something who sold his first company for ~ $30 million is back with a new startup, CoreOS. 

*The original and email version of 10 Things left out the word "consumer." A16Z is more strict about investing early in consumer startups than companies in other sectors, like enterprise.
