Submission + - Facebook Is Suing 'Mark Zuckerberg'

An anonymous reader writes: This has to be the funniest Facebook name story in a while. Facebook disabled the account of Israeli entrepreneur Rotem Guez because he runs a business called the Like Store, where he sold Likes to advertisers. Guez countered by suing Facebook for deleting his accounts on the social network. Facebook countered with its own cease and desist letter. Guez didn't respond to Facebook's demands. Instead, he legally changed his name to Mark Zuckerberg. "If you want to sue me, you’re going to have to sue Mark Zuckerberg," Guez reportedly told Facebook. Talk about a publicity stunt.

Submission + - Googlers Offer $33M for Use of NASA Airship Hangar

theodp writes: 'I wanna be a billionaire, so freakin' bad, buy all of the things I never had.' The Mercury News reports that NASA is considering an offer from Google's billionaire founders to provide '100 percent' funding to save Hangar One. Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt have, through a company they control, proposed paying the full $33 million cost of revamping Hangar One, once home to the Navy's giant airships at Moffett Field, in return for use up to two-thirds of the floor space of the hangar to house their fleet of eight private jets. In October, the Googlers struck an agreement with NASA Ames calling for the use of their 'co-located' Alpha fighter jet to, among other things, help NASA mitigate wildfires and study global warming.
