Microsoft Seeking Merger With Yahoo – Pair Hopes To Compete With Google For Advertising Dollars

New Offerings

(Best Syndication) Neither Yahoo nor Microsoft grasped the concept of the Internet the way Google did, and both companies are talking about a merger of some sorts again. To add to their problems, Google’s search results are still superior. This has prompted the two companies to look again at combining their efforts.

Although the two companies explored a merger a year ago, no deal was made back then. The New York Post broke the new story on Friday, citing sources close to the negotiations. Although neither Yahoo nor Microsoft would respond to the reports, the sources said that Microsoft was “stung” by their loss to Google in their pursuit of DoubleClick.

DownLoad HD Movie In One Second - IBM Unveils 160 Gigabit per Second Optical Chip Set At Anaheim Fiber Optic Conference

Smaller Than Dime

(Best Syndication) Anaheim CA - IBM scientists announced a prototype optical transceiver chipset at the 2007 Optical Fiber Conference in Anaheim California on Monday. The new chipset is capable of reaching speeds at least eight times faster than the optical components available today, according to the company.

The chipset will move information at a rate of 160 Gigabits per second (or 160 billion bits of information in a single second). This breakthrough technology may allow for a lightning fast one second download of a high definition feature-length film. Compare this to 30 minutes or longer with current technology.

Optical technology uses light pulses rather than electrons. The idea is to combine this technology with fiber-optic cable technology to provide a “new era of high-speed connectivity that will transform communications, computing and entertainment.”
