Will IBM buy Sun Microsystems for 6.5 billion USD?

From the series of shopping events during actual financial crisis here comes the news that IBM would be interested in buying Sun Microsystems for 6.5 billion dollars. The information appeared few days ago in The Wall Street Journal.

However according to the same publication there is great chances that the transaction will not go ahead. If this will materialize would be the largest acquisition in IBM's history, more important than that with Congos. The American company acquired in 2007 software solutions provider Congos for the amount of 5 billion dollars.

However, Sun Microsystems is still searching for a large company to take over and IBM is adding to the list including HP and Dell. Sun Microsystems registered for the last financial year losses of 200 million dollars.

You Tube, music and British users

Another week has past and we have some more news about You Tube. This time it seems that there was a misunderstanding between the bosses of the famous video sharing portal and PRS for Music, an association which owns copyrights to songs created by, no less than, 50.000 composers.

It seems that there has been some misunderstandings between the two sides in the past. This time the negotiations for a new agreement appears to have failed. On the one hand You Tube accuses British association that wants a price too high compared to that of the previous contract. Agency Reuters quotes an official even says on the You Tube blog that: "The negotiations failed because the British have asked too large amounts of money. Depending on the number of clicks on a video, the amounts would grow, inconceivable thing for us, because we would have registered losses."

On the other hand, British composers association for PRS Music, says exactly the opposite. They say that video-sharing portal owned by Google would want to pay a price below the contract that stipulated in the first one. It is hard to tell who is right, though? Should be You Tube or PRS for Music? Till then there are users in the UK that starting with today that can not access the music videos that are subject to copyright owned by the British association.

Need for Speed SHIFT - coming soon

The EA Games announces 3 new games from the Need for Speed series: Need For Speed Shift, Need For Speed Nitro and Need For Speed World Online. Only NFS and NFS Online World Shift will be available on PC and NFS Nitro will be available on Nintendo Wii console and Nintendo DS.
Need for Speed World Online will be a "Free Game" in which you can only play with friends and you can choose what car you want without having to carry out tasks or win races.
Need for Speed Shift is based on the idea of the simulator, providing a drop of realism of this game, having the opportunity to see inside the car. Graphic will be enhanced, and the vehicle control will be drastically revised and closer to reality.
Electronic Arts has sent a press release that officially confirms the three new Need For Speed titles and announces the approximate release date. Thus, Need For Speed Nitro and SHIFT will be available this autumn, while Need For Speed World Online will be released on the Asian market this year during the summer and in the U.S. market during the winter.
I am amazed by the EA Games speed when it comes to new names in the NFS series. It was like yesterday when Undercover was released and now they are announcing not one, but 3 games. Hardly wait to play them.

Save the software developers ! Do not kill the web !

Therefore, please use a browser based on open standards!
Somewhere around the beginning of the year, I found two interesting sites. I am talking about Kill Bill's browser and Explorer Destroyer. Today they are not existing anymore.

It seems that behind the site were the same person. Perhaps some of you are aware of.

A banal example: Google pays $ 1 for each user click on an AdSense banner via Firefox, download and install Firefox for the first time on the computer.
Another campaign, more fresh, less aggressive is SaveTheDevelopers. I felt good when I saw the list of sponsors and are two sites in Romania. Probably are more, many have found it in 30 seconds what it took to take a look over those logos.

Personally I can not accept anymore to build a site and to be forced to make all kind of compromises in order to achieve a decent show on IE6 and other browsers. IE 6 digest the most difficult and CSS code and simply makes life awful for people. You say that a real web designer will know what to do. Okay, but I must admit that the web designer is trying hard to do things to look good in any browser.

Edge Software & Ubuntu

Edge Software has managed to move a client on Linux completely. The used distribution is Ubuntu. Day to day activity of the company was last online on Linux servers, with the possibility of moving on client's network upon his request. The transition was made baed on some tests made in advance (1 year ago installing a laptop with Ubuntu). Now you can see immediate benefits: no viruses, no trojans already and the result was an increased confidence in computers.

Morale is good and joy of the start up is big. Time will tell if our vision was good.

PS: Edge use Ubuntu Software for production activity...
