A snapshot of the iPhone
Margaret Kane says, “Oh my God” over the iPhone.
“The photo has since been taken down, but the data included with the images suggests it was taken with one of the as yet unreleased devices, and the specs seem to match with what Apple has promised for the iPhone.”
Alex Zaharov Reutt says his father had the foresight to buy him a personal computer.
“It means interoperability between Windows and SuSe Linux. You take one step back from that – Novell and MS both believe in 5 years that there will be two dominant operating systems in the enterprise – Windows and Linux – and as much as Novell wants to see 100 per cent data centre – that’s not going to happen.

“Yahoo! landed an online advertising counterpunch to Google’s intended acquisition of DoubleClick overnight, with the announcement Yahoo had agreed to acquire Right Media, Inc. Yahoo! had already placed a 20 per cent “strategic investment” in Right Media back in October of last year. The remaining stake was expected to have cost Yahoo a cool $680M, far less than the $3.1B Google was expected to have shelled out for DoubleClick. Right Media’s core business is its “Remix Media” ad exchange, which will now serve as an open exchange for advertisers, publishers, ad networks (and now Yahoo!) to come together to buy and sell advertising both on and off the Yahoo! network. Yahoo will participate both as a buyer and seller of ads, and advertisers will now have more choices of where to place ads and to allow publishers to sell their own inventory alongside Yahoo’s.”
