Yesterday was an exciting time for the future of the Bucks in Milwaukee, as the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce, the Bradley Center, BMO Harris Bank and the Bucks announced a new sponsorship that will expand the name of the building to the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Bucks.com was on hand with photos and video of the announcement.
Coverage round up from the Business Journal, Journal Sentinel, WTMJ and the AP.

Review of the Droid RAZR MAXX -
I had the opportunity to take one of Motorola’s newest devices for a spin for a few weeks. Check out my review (with pics and video!) at the link above.
Thanks to Colin for setting up the demo, it was great to take the Verizon LTE network for a spin.
Muy Loca!!! -
This could be my favorite tweet of all time.
Pinterest has been all the rage for the past few months and rightfully so.
Over the weekend I spoke with the guys at Get Pinterested and gave them my thoughts on the platform and how we are using it. Check out my interview here.

A "Holy Shit" Website -
Speaking of Path, hopefully you’ve visited their new website by now. If not, click the link above. It’s amazing.
It’s the kind of thing you used to need Flash for. And it was one of the few decent arguments for why it perhaps should stick around. With it, you could make a website that felt alive — more like art and less utilitarian. Path’s Danny Trinh replicated that using only HTML5.
It’s a tad bit blurry and it doesn’t work on the iPad, but we’ll let those slide.
Watching the reaction to Path 2 that past few hours has been fascinating. It’s a testament to the idea that design matters. And I don’t just mean how the app looks. To quote Steve Jobs, “It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
The Path team has nailed so many little things with their app that the first impression users are coming away with is sheer delight. That alone won’t get them to their full potential, but it’s a hell of a start.
Little things matter. Not compromising matters. Attention to detail matters.
I bet there are at least a half dozen things in this app that become standard design practice in most iOS apps. And they’re things Facebook and Google won’t be able to copy anytime soon with their UIWebView wrappers.
Update: Path engineer Rafik Salama explains that the HTML5 video isn’t the problem on the iPad, it’s the auto-play functionality — which makes sense.
