DigGoogle – What Google Can Gain if They Buy Digg 3

DigGoogle – What Google Can Gain if They Buy Digg

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSDigg grew to a powerhouse site in a very short time. The Popular News Aggregator service continues to be a great place for people to not only read news, but also contribute to what they think is news. Alexa reports that Digg has been fluctuating around the top 100 to 150 sites being viewed. 52.5% of those viewers are in the US. The rumor mill is stirring up again that Google has put interest in buying Digg. TechCrunch reports that the “Rumor” is Digg will be selling for $200 million although CEO Jay Adelson denies it. Will this be a good deal for Digg, or can they grow and survive on their own? Digg started in 2004 by Kevin Rose, Own Byrne, Ron Gorodetzky and Jay Adelson. The idea was to aggregate news items and...

Where does that leave Icahn with Yahoo 0

Where does that leave Icahn with Yahoo

So is it Googhoo? Yahoogle? GoogleY? However you want to say it, Yahoo seems to continue to drive the stake in their hearts. Either Jerry Yang has hit a Yahoo midlife crisis or he basically said “If I can’t have it, no one can!”. This mess ain’t over, either. Just because Microsoft has said they don’t want Yahoo anymore doesn’t mean Carl Icahn is going to back down. Yahoo is falling apart. The rats are leaving the ship. All the trees are still. Pick your metaphor. First – is the Yahoo Google deal going to hurt or help Yahoo. Right now it’s hurting. Yahoo stock dropped 15% after the deal was made. Yahoo is choosing a bed to sleep in, instead of saying “I’ll take anything”. Being exclusive is nice, but if Google wants to drop Yahoo like a bad habit, they will.

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage? 0

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIt would be interesting to see how much bandwidth I go through a month. Uploading shows, ustream channel, downloading software updates and media content.  All of it legally. There are some that decide to use their internet connection without abandon. They download movies, music and computer programs without legally paying for it. I have seen many downloading 4 to 5 items at a time, which at gigabytes at a pop, it’s a lot of data that passes through. And with programs like bittorrent, not only does it download the items, but it turns your computer into a “Seed” in which others can use to pull from. Comcast is working on a model to cap bandwidth per month. For some it won’t be noticeable. For the internet Zealot, they might find it tougher to work and...
