With the dominance of flash video and recent focus in ‘open’ video formats such as WebM for HTML5, do you think Real still has the capability to compete in the web and normal media?

HANA is amazing! I’ve been to a demo and I was blown away! 300,000,000 rows graphed and analyzed in 5 seconds! Simply amazing! Amidst its surreal power, what do you think is the major setback for HANA?

FOR: Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook

What are the steps being taken by Facebook regarding Identity Theft? And is FACEBOOK threatened by the growing number of Twitter fanatics?

3D for 4G is very impressive. HTC is a great product. How do you plan to play the 4G war with the mobile giants?

-Is it not hypocritical that your site expressly chastises the rich, but you just closed a $300 million that you profited hugely from, and that you don’t do your own taxes? Did you know that you probably benefit hugely from the tax rates and loopholes that you profess to hate?
-How do you intend to address the site design of huffingtonpost.com in the future?
-What are your plans to increase cash flow in the future? Do you even have any, or do you expect your current ad-based business model to be sustainable in the near future?
-Are you planning on building the liberal News Corp? Does this mean an eventual IPO is in the works?
-Would you still be able to turn a profit if you did the same level of original reporting/paying your contributors like other papers do?

For Mark Zuckerberg (Because I know he’s going to be on the list later):
-I’ve had several performance issues with your site. Are you aware of them? Do you have any plans to fix them, including purchasing more servers and other infrastructure improvements?
-How much of your money do you make a year selling the photos and information of your clientel?

Any Google executive:
-Are you going to put more focus into making the Mac version of Google Chrome more solid? Because I’ve been having performance issues that were so bad that I unwillingly have to use Firefox until they are remedied. I report tons of bugs every day.
