Prices are zooming in the Bay Area as startups hire and new techies flock to town.
FORTUNE -- Whether we're living through another tech bubble remains hotly contested, but there's no denying its impact on one market: rental apartments in San Francisco. With Twitter, Zynga, and numerous other local startups hiring in droves, all those newbies need somewhere to live.

A company that wants to bring online storage and sharing to the masses? Hardly original, but with numbers like these, Dropbox may do just that.
The startup on every venture and angel investor's lips these days isn't a social media company or a site hawking coupons. No, the tech world is currently enamored with Dropbox, a four-year-old company that aims to bring cloud computing -- that catchall phrase corporations use MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Mar 16, 2011 5:00 AM ET
Watch out, Silicon Valley. Thanks to Google, Foursquare, and others, the Big Apple is fast becoming home to some top Internet talent.

Finally, a Powerpoint presentation worth reading
It isn't often that I get convinced to read through a slide deck 128 images long. But after the fourth startup CEO, in this case Jonathan Sposato, CEO of online photo-editing service Picnik brought it to my attention; I sat down to give "Reference Guide on our Freedom & Responsibility Culture" a gander.

These days, getting a large handout from venture capitalists is rare. It's even tougher when your startup needs a lot of cash to compete with Google.
Kosmix, however, has defied the odds. In late October, the plucky startup raised $20 million, led by Fortune's parent company Time Warner (TWX), by assuring investors that Google is not the only way to search on the Web. Kosmix says it takes a MOREyiwyn - Dec 9, 2008 2:12 PM ET
