Is that a good DEAL????

MICROSOFT is planning to bye YAHOO…..this is not my Falsetto!!!

Week ago I read this news on, and I was thinking "is that going to be a good deal…??"

And it was really a bad feel for me from Yahoo mails and Yahoo messenger since last week…that made me to think is that a good deal ??

Yahoo messengers’ last week behavior ….

We use it for our internal project communication….really it helps a lot, no doubt about that….but do you think that if you are giving something for free, you should not care about it…..???
Last week….within our team, all were not able to log in to yahoo messenger at the same time….only if one logged out the other can loggin….offf.
Then the other problem….I was able to send the message but the recipient was not getting that…..huh.

Yahoo mail this week behavior…..

Trying to send a 5 line mail to my friend’s id… was bouncing left and right….damn
Telling ID dose not exit….bull sit…and the very next day I was able to send on the same ID…..Finally.

Here I am not trying to tell that because of these two minor problems yahoo is not a good company.

I feel Yahoo is a Rocking company like Google but.....

I like its “Do You Yahoo” he he he

But why it is planning to merge ???

Now the merging with Microsoft….can still Yahoo’ens will say “Do You Yahoo” ??? I doubt !!!!

But anyways why Bill Gates so afraid of Google….???

Is that the reason he is planning to acquire the Yahoo.
And then their employ will say “Do You MicroYahoo”….he he he.

But “MicroYahoo” sounds even smaller that Yahoo in computer terminology(Micro).

Isn’t is ???

But Anyways here what I got something which finally convinced me “Why Bill wants Yahoo”…….

(FORTUNE Magazine) – MICROSOFT WAS ALREADY MONTHS INTO A MASSIVE project aimed at taking down Google when the truth began to dawn on Bill Gates. It was December 2003. He was poking around on the Google company website and came across a help-wanted page with descriptions of all the open jobs at Google. Why, he wondered, were the qualifications for so many of them identical to Microsoft job specs? Google was a web search business, yet here on the screen were postings for engineers with backgrounds that had nothing to do with search and everything to do with Microsoft's core business--people trained in things like operating-system design, compiler optimization, and distributed-systems architecture. Gates wondered whether Microsoft might be facing much more than a war in search. An e-mail he sent to a handful of execs that day said, in effect, "We have to watch these guys. It looks like they are building something to compete with us."
He sure got that right. Today Google isn't just a hugely successful search engine; it has morphed into a software company and is emerging as a major threat to Microsoft's dominance. You can use Google software with any Internet browser to search the web and your desktop for just about anything; send and store up to two gigabytes of e-mail via Gmail (Hotmail, Microsoft's rival free e-mail service, offers 250 megabytes, a fraction of that); manage, edit, and send digital photographs using Google's Picasa software, easily the best PC photo software out there; and, through Google's Blogger, create, post online, and print formatted documents--all without applications from Microsoft.

While Google was launching those products--all of them free--Microsoft has been trying in vain to catch up in search. It has spent about $150 million on its search project, code-named Underdog. But Google and lately Yahoo keep leaping ahead with innovations like local-area search complete with maps and satellite photos, ways to search inside a video file, and search designed for cellphones.
Simply put, Google has become a new kind of foe, and that's what has Gates so riled. It has combined software innovation with a brand-new Internet business model--and it wounds Gates' pride that he didn't get there first. Since Google doesn't sell its search products (it makes its money from the ads that accompany its search results), Microsoft can't muscle it out of the marketplace the way it did rivals like Netscape. But what really bothers Gates is that Google is gaining the ability to attack the very core of Microsoft's franchise--control over what users do first when they turn on their computers.
Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page and CEO Eric Schmidt all say that any talk about supplanting Microsoft is ludicrous. But the idea that Google will one day marginalize Microsoft's operating system and bypass Windows applications is already starting to become reality. The most paranoid people at Microsoft even think "Google Office" is inevitable. Google is taking over operating system features too, like desktop search. There are fewer uses for the START button in Windows now that Google's desktop search can locate any program, document, photo, music file, or e-mail on a computer.
All of which helps explain why inside Microsoft, the battle with Google has become far more than a fight over search: It's a certifiable grudge match for king of the hill in high tech. "Google is interesting not just because of web search, but because they're going to try to take that and use it to get into other parts of software," says Gates as he leans forward in his chair, his body coiled as if he could spring to his feet at any second. "If all there was was search, you really shouldn't care so much about it. It's because they are a software company," he says. "In that sense," he adds later, "they are more like us than anyone else we have ever competed with."

Employees jumping from Microsoft to Google

NEW YORK ( -- It hasn't been a good month for Microsoft's Google-fighters. So bad that one left abruptly last week, and another decided this week to switch teams.
Vic Gundotra, a general manager for platform evangelism at Microsoft and a 15-year employee, has agreed to join Google after first spending a year working on charitable endeavors, Business 2.0 has learned.

"Mr. Gundotra has resigned from Microsoft and entered into an agreement with Google," Google spokesman Steve Langdon wrote in an emailed statement. "He will not be a Google employee for one year and intends to spend that time on philanthropic pursuits. We are uncertain what precise role he will play when he begins working for Google, but he has a broad range of skills and experience which we believe will be valuable to Google."Microsoft spokesman Tom Pilla confirmed Gundotra's departure and says that the executive has a noncompete agreement with Microsoft preventing him from working for a competitor for one year after leaving the company.

Big name Big task…..Yeh!!!

Yes I am talking about “Ronaldo Luiz Nazario da Silva” means yours’ and mine the only one RONALDO “9” yeh….

Why I am so happy ?????

Because he wears “9” and “9” is my Lucky number…….

Only occasionally can the bare facts and figures of a player’s career convey the sheer talent that they possess. Ronaldo Luiz Nazario da Silva is quite simply one of the greatest strikers in the history of world football, capable of leaving an entire team for dead with his darting runs and dribbling ability, voted FIFA World Player of the Year on three occasions and already a double FIFA World Cup™ winner. These honours are merely the tip of the iceberg in the record-breaking career of the man they call ‘The Phenomenon’.

Having been a member of the FIFA World Cup-winning Brazil squad in 1994, the prodigiously talented teenager joined Dutch side PSV Eindhoven in the same year. In only two years at the club, he scored 54 goals in a mere 57 games – an incredible average of just under a goal every game….Gosh Gosh and Gosh,

In 2002, he moved back to Spain with Real Madrid and the then Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari gambled on the forward’s return to form and fitness by calling him up to Brazil’s FIFA World Cup squad. No one could have predicted a better outcome. Not only had Brazil won their fifth FIFA World Cup, but the ‘Phenomenon’ was the tournament’s top scorer, netting eight goals in only seven games. Only Pele has netted as many goals for Brazil in the competition’s history – both players having scored 12 times.

And this time Ronaldo was looking to surpass that figure as well as overhaul Gerd Muller’s long-standing 14-goal record as top scorer in the history of the FIFA World Cup. And he has done that wooooooooo…

Ronaldo inscribed his name into football's history books on Tuesday 27th June 2006 by scoring a record-breaking 15th FIFA World Cup™ goal to take him clear of Gerd Muller as the tournament's all-time top marksman.

Targeting for XX / XX / XXXX

You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.”

Hmm sounds good.....

I believe ,

"Achieving less is not the shame but aiming less is the shame."

So here I GO.....

My Number: ONE

My Number : TWO

My Number : THREE

Wondering for XX / XX / XXXX....this is DD / MM / YYYY.

But that is with me :)

    Google Suggest,
    Hey I stopped using for my search.Now I use google suggest.

    I still remember the date “5/15/06” when I found this into your lab.
    This is really very helpful….
    Before that I use to copy some things from net and save into a file, whatever I get important for future reuse. And the only problem which I was facing was to keep putting that doc in my and my friends mails.
    But those days gone when you have given me this Google notepad.
    Its amazing man….thanks a lot for this.

    Google Lab,
    I love your lab.

Boss that fellow has 8 Years of Experience…..

Best utilization of available resources….that is what we are called ENGINEERS :)

People say ALL Software Engineers becomes DUMP after 7-10 years…..So they are no more Engineers after 7-10 Years….

People say because they think these are the work we do after 7-10 Years:
  • mail check….
  • mail forward with FYI….
  • draw some graph in Excel….
  • draw some project plan…..
  • feel good factor that is roam in the office and check how SE and SSE are struggling and remember our own time and feel good and just give a dirty smile on them…..
  • attend the bull-sit status meetings and throw some ideas….
  • become mentors for some body and DUMP the ideas..….
  • suggest to read “this novel that novel” “this book that book” …..
  • come late, go early……
  • do sign on leave applications……
  • increase some one salary the way you want….

And this list just goes on and on……

I say….people who think like this are all NUTS.
Because ALL Software Engineers are not like that…..some are Engineers forever.

Example :

Today morning I was using one stove for my BF into the kitchen…….my roomy came into the kitchen to prepare his BF.
He took match stick from the match box and used my stove to burn that match stick and the best thing he did was..he burnt that match stick to the wrong side..the side which is used to hold the match stick…and he burnt the second stove , then he used his thumb to off the light and he kept the match stick in the match box…..

WOOOO that was really AWESOME……
I was like WOW.... we can use this match stick next time, coz it is still unused…..

1-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-6

Wow here comes Nadal again……

Rafael Nadal……my new favorite since last year when he beat Federer in last year's French Open semi-final.

Yesterday with a 1-6, 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 victory over the Swiss star in the French Open final, the irrepressible Spaniard retained his title and became the first man to beat Federer in a Grand Slam final.

The match was Federer's first defeat in eight Grand Slam finals and his status as the world's best player is now under serious threat from Nadal.

Tennis is a non-contact sport but Nadal makes it feel like one. He has the presence of a clay court colossus, with biceps like cannonballs and a venomous look in his eye.

Well done Nadal, Cheers for You…….
