At CES, two firms have been showing off ways for home users to make and share their own 3D films. One is a webcam with two lenses that mimics human sight and turns the images it captures into 3D footage. Another firm is producing software that it hopes will make it far easier for home users to show 3D movies on many different types of screen.

Want to manage Britney Spears' online persona? She's on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and other sites, and somebody (not her of course) has to do all the hard work of posting and responding to content. That's where you come in. If you went to Harvard, that is. Brandcasting Unlimited, Britney's online manager, posted the job listing below for "Britney Spears 2.0 Media Manager" yesterday on a Harvard-only private job board. Among the not-so-tough job requirements: you must be "addicted to social networks such as MySpace and Facebook."

The Wall Street Journal today is reporting that a new Yahoo! CEO could be named as early as next week. Lately, the buzz has surrounded Autodesk executive chairman Carol Bartz. Bartz previously was CEO of Autodesk from 1992 to 2006. She has also been an executive at Sun Microsystems. She serves on the board of Cisco with current Yahoo! CEO Jerry Yang and on the Intel board with current Yahoo! President Susan Decker.
