And the winner is... Blue Ray!

So, it looks like the high definition format war has ended. To be honest, I'm not really that much affected. But it is nice to know that I'm sure to get compatibility when I do buy that HD player and that wide screen TV in the future (*dreaming*).

Anyway, here is a blow-by-blow of the battle that took place: http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,142584-pg,1/article.html

Microsoft + Yahoo = Microhoo(?) Yahoosoft(?)

I don't usually blog about these type of items, but this one sounds quite interesting. It has been rumored about for some time. Now it seems to be coming true.

Microsoft has just offered to buy Yahoo! for $44.6 billion. Read Steve Balmer's letter to the Yahoo! board here.

I personally don't see much good coming out of this. Especially since I'm heavily using Yahoo services such as Yahoo Mail and Flickr. I don't think I want Microsoft to be messing with these services.

Oh well, who knows? This might just turn out to be good for us. We'll have to wait and see.
