Really, now. America promises a lots of rights in its constitution. People don't always get those. Throw the president and all senators and congressmen in jail. A state can renege on its promise. A company cannot. Great. If you want absolute safety, stay absolutely away from the internet and people as well. And what are parents doing? Flying kites?
heh. there was this cartoon in the paper. i dont recall. maybe toi... a judge in the chair. kanoon kee devi in the stand. judge says: how dare you say you are more important than me... i put you in contempt of the court. you are going to jail.something like that
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft is poised to buy 5% of Facebook for $300 million to $500 million, valuing the company at up to $10 billion. Microsoft already handles advertising for the site
they want to because they want to get their asses into everything. incidentally, microsoft is already working on their OWN social networking service since years now. cant even recall its name... Wallop... right that one.microsoft manages ads for facebook already.and also.facebook owner is pretty close to ray ozzie in microsoft. facebook would not sell out completely. but they might sell a 5% stake coz they would need the money for all the bandwidth they are eating up now.
Zuckerberg sometimes lapses into jarringly grandiose language, for example when he told me that what Facebook is unveiling would be "the most powerful distribution mechanism that's been created in a generation." He may be crazy, but then again, he is something of a boy wonder. He consults frequently with Microsoft chief software architect Ray Ozzie and counts Washington Post Co. CEO Don Graham as a friend. Microsoft and the Post Co. were among the 65 companies that launched 85 new Facebook applications at F8.
he is closer to microsoft than google. so that's one thing in favor of microsoft.
orkut is not that big considering india and brazil are the majority on it.
facebook has millions of american users. and good quality users... who are in or just out of college. the creamy layer of the society.
