The London School of Business and Finance is offering a certified M.B.A. degree through a free Facebook app. You only pay tuition if you want to take an exam for credit. The program is hugely popular, although I’m not sure about attending virtual frat parties. In other news, Kinect is the hot item this holiday season and some see it as a hot item for the bedroom. Sex-tech gurus like Kyle Machulis are exploring how to use the technology for “Kinect Sex.” While there are limits to how kinky Kinect can be, Machulis and others enthusiasts are busy working on a solution. OK then, and finally, News Corp has recently rebranded MySpace as a ‘social entertainment’ site and now it’s considering either a sale or partnership for the site. News Corp purchased MySpace in 2005 for $580 million and has struggled to maintain relevance as Facebook continues to grow.
