Trying out a new application

I am trying out a new widget. It’s called Skribit and it is a survey type of application for me to ask my readers what they would be interested in getting my views about or would like me to blog about. Head on over to my blogtalkradio blog called INFO4URADIO and give it a try and let me know what you think. It’s in the left hand navigation area. Don’t forget to bookmark the blog so you can come back and make suggestions anytime. We would love to hear your suggestions.

What’s up with Microsoft and Yahoo!

Today again we face a major internet player trying to takeover Yahoo. This has been going on for quite some time now. Google and now Microsoft. CEO  Steve Ballmer, left, told employees in a company assembly Thursday (5-10-08)  that he knows how much he’d spend to buy Yahoo and accelerate his company’s Internet play. Meanwhile, Yahoo CEO Jerry Wang seemingly wants to take a less aggressive approach by keeping an open mind for other offers of merging with Google now for a more vast search engine platform.

This I know the big guys just keep getting bigger and for our purposes we should be aware of what is going on and how this will effect us and our internet searches. A question to ask yourself being that Microsoft has the monopoly on PC software, updates and what all do we want them to totally control the search engines too? They are going after Google it seems not just in healthy competition but hostile and aggressive. But yet they are willing to walk away if the price isn’t right. Now standing at a whopping $42.4 billion dollars. Can you say, “Yahoo-oooo!”

Assertive or Aggressive you be the judge

Funny Barack Obama!

Yesterday on the David Letterman show U.S. Presidential candidate Barack Obama presented yet another top 10 list. It is always good to see the more personal side of a candidate and of course their sense of humor. It had me laughing at a few the items he present. Especially the one about Paula Abdul and his kids.

I have to use that sometime when I am telling my teenager to do something. I suppose it would be better than because mom told you to. I will just add I am your mom and I approve this message, lol!

Hope you get a laugh to start your day! 🙂
