    Happy Birthday Google.. 

    Google's 10th Birthday

    Google completes its 10 years, 28 September 1998 – 28 September 2008..

     

    Starting from what was called  as ‘Dont be Evil’, Google today is the world’s largest database holding tonnes of secrets about people, their habbits, their thinking, their culture et al..

    In the first 10 years, Google has introduced several user oriented web softwares that helped them remorph the IT industry..Initially, Google began its life as a simple web search engine no one could had imagined to be what is perheps an integral part of their computing experience. There are other players in this market, like MSN, Ask, the recent Cuil, but Google has outcasted them and I dont think there would be anything much left for anyone to try as far as Web search is concerned.

     

    Long live Google, and dont forget, the privacy bomb’s ticking.. 😉

    Gates: Digital locks too complex for consumers 

    Microsoft boss Bill Gates has told a group of influential bloggers that copy protection for digital music and video is too complex for consumers.

    Mr Gates was speaking to an invited party of bloggers and web developers at Microsoft’s Seattle headquarters.

    Digital Rights Management (DRM), which is used to stop copying, is a big issue for some people who feel it limits what they can do with legally bought files. Microsoft is one of the biggest exponents of DRM, which is used to protect music and video files on lots of different online services, including Napster and the Zune store.

    Backers of DRM argue it gives artists an assurance that their work is being protected while critics of DRM argue that the tools limit the value of downloaded music or video files because of the restrictions imposed to try to prevent copying.

    Hmm…better late then never, Mr Gates realized that he is too gonna go the Apple way.
