Now Microsoft gets Evil again

Posted in blog, google, hilarious, internet, Microsoft, US, yahoo on February 3, 2008 by urdamned

Yeah, Microsoft is at it again, trying to get one up on google. Its trying to buy good old yahoo now.

Microsoft Corp. made an unsolicited $44.6 billion cash and stock bid
for Yahoo on Friday, setting the stage for a deal that would shake up
the competitive and lucrative market for online advertising.

Yahoo shareholders would receive $31 a share, which represents a 62% premium over Yahoo stock price one day earlier.

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive, called the move the “next major milestone” for the software giant.

“We are very, very confident this is the right path for Microsoft and for Yahoo,” Ballmer said.

Microsoft
hopes to close the deal by the end of the year. Ballmer said that
Microsoft has been in “off and on” talks with Yahoo for 18 months and
said he called Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang Thursday night to tell him the bid
was coming.

Microsoft
announced the bid early Friday. In a statement, the company said the
offer allows Yahoo shareholders to elect to receive cash or a fixed
number of shares of Microsoft common stock, with the software giant’s
offer consisting of one-half cash and one-half Microsoft common stock.

In a statement, Yahoo acknowledged receipt of the offer and said its board would evaluate the proposal “carefully and promptly.”

But the sad part is Microsoft would still be second in the search business and still they would be making their same old overpriced software. And yeah their stock price fell after they decided to make the bid public.

Google would be watching this closely 🙂 and looks like someone at Yahoo is gonna get rich soon. My only hope is that if this deal goes through, the ideas of Yahoo would combine with the money power that Microsoft has and give us something better than, what both of them can offer separately. But sadly, it may create another internet monopoly too which is scary because Microsoft is involved.

“If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in the dark with a mosquito.”

EL may be small now but we sure are making an impact. We are already PR5 and still gaining.

Thank you all for the support, comments and the mails.

The most expensive part of the Google Homepage

This is a really evil thing that the guys in “Dont be evil” foundation are doing to themselves. Yeah you guessed it right we are talking about none other than Google. Google cofounder Sergey Brin told public radio’s Marketplace that around one percent of all Google searches go through the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button.

Wondering what is so evil about it and whats the big deal???

Because of this button  the user is directly taken to the top search result, i,e Google doesn’t get to show search ads on one percent of all its searches. That costs the company around $110 million in annual revenue, according to Rapt’s Tom Chavez.

So why does Google keep such a costly button around?

“It’s possible to become too dry, too corporate, too much about making money. I think what’s delightful about ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ is that it reminds you there are real people here,” Google exec Marissa Mayer explained, or at least tried to.

Interesting isnt it??? Probably its the lesser evil philosophy they are following these days, just like the lesser evil thing they did in China. Good atleast they are doing it to themselves… 😛

The Tutki’s had talked earlier about the Church of Google….

But we also seem to have a church which actually believes that google doesnt have all the answers…

The case in point is the Claude Presbyterian church …

Have a look…

We generally dont cover much religious stuff, but hey this thing really struck me. For googlers like we Tutkis google has always been God or atleast Godlike. Now there is this bunch of smart guys who have started this thing called THE CHURCH OF GOOGLE. Funny enough they even have collected proof of why google is god. Click on the screenshot to enlarge:
