Country music singer Mindy McCready has died at age 37, according to multiple reports.

The singer died Sunday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot, the best friend of the singer told  correspondent Andrea Canning. Her body was found on the porch at her Heber Springs, Ark., home, according to a statement from the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office to CNN.

Appearing on the network, Dr. Drew Pinsky — who stated that he treated McCready on his show for several weeks years ago — said that his sources could confirm the death.

360Buy, the quick-delivery shopping site once described as the Chinese mashup of Amazon and Fresh Direct, announced $700 million USD in funding on Friday. While this gives the company, China’s second largest e-tailer after Alibaba, enough cash to delay its much-anticipated IPO, one of its investors, Kingdom Holding Company, a Saudi Arabia firm, focuses on companies that will make a public offering within three years.

March 15th UPDATE: Cable One announced that it has reached a multiyear agreement with AMC Networks for continued carriage of AMC and WeTV.  So no one will lose access to The Walking Dead or other AMC shows!

Sunday nights are prime TV viewing time for many people.  Lots of great shows such as Downton Abbey, Once Upon A Time, Dexter, Shameless, and the most popular The Walking Dead comes on.  So when I got back home after going out to eat, I expected to start playing The Walking Dead that was recording on the DVR.  When I push play, I see the movie Anaconda.  This movie is about snakes and not about zombies!  I was waiting to see some zombie killing.  Instead I got to see Ice Cube and Jennifer Lopez.

Just in time for Posterous’ closure on April 30th, a service has launched to bring Posterous blogs over to rival service, Tumblr.

JustMigrate was announced the same day that Posterous unceremoniously called it quits via its blog. The service requires you to punch in your posterous URL, authorize it with Tumblr, and you’re all set. For those with multiple Tumblr blogs, granting JustMigrate access via your primary Tumblr will bring you to a page where you can select which blog you want to port over to.

Moving 100 posts is free, and it’s $10 for 250 and $25 for 500 posts. Tumblr’s API allows 250 posts, or 75 photo posts to be uploaded daily, so JustMigrate will queue posts over days if you have a large Posterous blog.

The service was created by 3Crumbs, a five-man team out of India that has produced a mobile shopping app. Its…
