I hope it is not to be, but I have already found a new web hosting company to replace Yahoo! hosting, who run this blog …. should the unthinkable buyout from Mickeysoft go ahead.
I have also kind of found a replacement for Flickr …. del.icio.us will be hard to replace
So PLEASE let sanity prevail and don’t let share market greed win this one!!
I have Yahoo! email, business email, Flickr accounts, and even this blog is hosted on Yahoo!
I even applied for a job with Yahoo!, and at one time I thought about heading to Yahoo! research in Barcelona.
The thing is I hate Microsoft.
How will I replace all these services if Microsoft buys you out???
There a story in the Wall Street Journal that Microsoft is planning to buy into Facebook. I saw several bloggers pick this story up, commenting on the Microsoft catchup aspect of the story.
But no one seemed to have picked up this ironic fact: Facebook runs on Linux (and Apache). So Microsoft wants to use innovative new products built on superior technologies to prop up its boring, aging, and second rate technology.
