Week in Review #3

The news was surging this week despite the fact that there were only four business days. On an Oodle note, we launched Oodle Canada. With 38 metros and 31 universities (and growing), we’re already seeing some strong local traction up in the strange and brilliant land above.
On a different note, Allen Stern over at Center Networks made an awesome video review of Oodle. Check it out!

While we’re in the realm of classifieds, however, one of the biggest stories of this week was that eBay quietly launched Kijiji in the US. As Craig noted below, Kijiji launched on Tuesday to a storm of media coverage, much of which is asking about the future of classifieds, eBay and Craigslist. Donna Bogatin at InsiderChatter did a nice Q&A with Craig, and Peter Krasilovsky from The Kelsey Group and The Local Onliner interviewed Faith about the launch. We’ll definitely be watching this one.

In celebrity (and other important) news, the Wii has officially outsold the PS3, which is pretty awesome considering we just bought a Wii for the office (can you have too much fun?), and Paris Hilton went to Hawaii. Will we be seeing a decline in Paris Hilton news? I sure hope not!
