The online torrent based file sharing giant- The Pirate Bay has been now acquired by the Swedish gaming company Global Gaming Factor X for $7.8 Million. The company was sold after it was found to breach the international copyright laws and was sued to provide its customers with a complete channel of songs and movies for instant download.

The founders Gottfrid Warg and Peter Sund said that the company auction was too much undervalued than what it actually was. The website income is projected to be invested on a free speech and information forum.

The "now owner" of the website said that the website will be based on a newer model that satisfies all including the service and content providers.

Will Mininova and Rapidshare be soon auctioned too?

Microsoft, The Multimillion Software Enterprise has decided to pull off its MSN Web messenger online chat software, asking its users to use the Messenger integrated with Live People and Hotmail. Microsoft had provided an official deadline of 30th June, 2009 (Tomorrow!) to shut down it's Web Messenger Service. The company has also planned to pull off its Microsoft Money and Encarta on the same date.

Microsoft came up with this decision in order to streamline its investment on updates and to realign its services under one brand. Microsoft says that its main advantage lies in the fact that it lets you know if a person is online or not, so that you decide whether to send him/her a message or make a direct chat. Now how innovative is this idea? Google and Yahoo! have been doing this since generations. And that's what they call innovation- Same as they did with the multi-touch feature introduced in Windows 7. :P

Will the world like this change in Microsoft's strategy?

What's your reaction to it? Speak out through your comments!

Google Community is soon going to celebrate it's second 10th birthday in a row after feasting its own 10th birthday on 17th September 2007. This August 24, Blogger turns 10. Originally founded by Evan Williams of Pyra Labs in 1999 and later acquired by Google on 17th February 2003, Blogger today hosts around 100 Million blogs all over the world.

Today Blogger has become the Trademark for the phenomenon of writing blogs, after all it is open to every newbie saying hello to the web. Every minute around 270,000 words are written on Blogger. That's too many people expressing there feelings. Huh! I still wonder what made Evan think of this phenomenon. Anyways, that's why he is what he is today- The "Blog" Father. How good would he feel seeing his baby turn an adolescent!

"Happy Birthday Blogger" :)
