Yahoo in news … and on a roll!


First, Microsoft realizes it has been living the life of an underdog in the major online market and plans its revenge the old style – Monopo.. err to buy what it needs to grow – Yahoo. Yahoo cleanly states “DO NOT WANT!” [Link]


Google gets worried about it, issues statements out, offers to help Yahoo by partnering it to avoid a monopoly by Microsoft. [Link]

Microsoft is not stopped by Yahoo’s refusal of their offer of some 40 “undervalued” billion dollars and gives Yahoo a death sentence of 3 weeks. Like “boot up or shut up” from Hackers (1995). [Link]

Yahoo rejects once more, and now, has partnered with Google Adsense to show Google ads on Yahoo search pages. [Link]

Oh my, what’s gonna happen to the Yahoo’s advertising feature I wonder …

Microsoft finally grumbles – Calls this a monopoly. [Link]

More action as the month progresses! :D

Ice Age 3 – The Third Ice Age – Err …


I loved Ice Age (The Movie), the first part was very nice to watch with the humans involved and being a ‘real’ Ice Age themed movie.

Then came the second movie, Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, which was based on the melting of the ice. And Noah’s Ark. This one was way boring than its predecessor. Yet, the Scrat’s attempts to protect preserve and store his acorn never fails to amuse me. So’s gonna be the case for the upcoming Ice Age movie.

Say hello to Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

Yup its Dinos alright, and they are gonna meet the rest of the crew – A sabretooth, a Sloth Bear and a Mammoth. Not to mention the amazing Scrat.

The movie’s gonna come in July next year (2009)

Jump for the poster (Thanks to DezinerFolio)

Gmail’s Chat gets invisible mode!


People should have been waiting only too long for such a wonderful stalking tool and now Google’s yet again satisfied them. ;)

Gmail’s Chat module now has Invisible mode in it while the GTalk client still doesn’t have it. (Do they even actively develop the desktop version of it?)


Nice addition, now its time for me to *poof* Ninja style.
