Selected News

Gigs for those who want to play some more: Yahoo Inc. (YHOO.O: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Wednesday it will soon begin giving users of its free Web e-mail service 1 gigabyte of storage, four times more than it now offers, amid intense competition.

IBM gets on SPAM: Like other sender authentication protocols, FairUCE is aimed at stopping the "spoofing" of e-mail, the common practice by most spammers and all phishers of forging their From: addresses in an attempt to hide their whereabouts.

Microsoft finding some bumps in the EU: An EU official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said rivals of Microsoft had charged that the Windows version without the audio and video service might not work as well with other software. The EU antitrust office, however, said tests were still ongoing.

Google runs into trouble withthe French press. Apparently the search engine company did not respect authorship: On se souviendra que l'Agence France Presse (AFP) déposait jeudi dernier une plainte contre Google, car l'agence de presse estimait que le service de nouvelles Google News ne respectait pas les droits d'auteurs sur ses photos et ses textes (détails).

Yahoo Buys Flicker: Aujourd'hui, c'est la société Ludicorp Research & Development qui a annoncé officiellement, par la voix de son président, avoir signé un contrat de rachat avec le géant américain Yahoo. Une façon originale pour le moteur de recherche de souffler sa dixième bougie ? Il semblerait que non

Gmail is becoming much more popular than hotmail and Yahoo because of its simplicity: Entre 150 y 500 veces más amplio que sus rivales directos, rápido, simple, eficaz contra el 'spam' y, además, gratuito. A pesar de que todavía le faltan ciertos 'retoques' por estar en pruebas —etapa que probablemente durará de tres a seis meses—, el nuevo servicio de correo electrónico de Google, presentado públicamente hace sólo unas semanas, puede suponer una verdadera revolución en la Red. Que se preparen Yahoo! y MSN: su 'bestia negra' ya es una realidad.

Firefox burning throughout the rest of the world, including Latin America: Ahora, Microsoft enfrentará una nueva batalla, pues sus competidores buscan ofrecer ventajas que convenzan a los usuarios de bajar sus programas de la red; las ofertas van desde una mayor seguridad contra virus, menos ventanas de anuncios y la posibilidad de evitar fraudes de identidad. En este sentido, Firefox ha superado los 25 millones de descargas de Internet en 100 días, de acuerdo con la Fundación Mozilla, la comunidad de desarrolladores de software libre que creó el programa.

Panda bears in China will become part of a network (literary); 163 bears will have locative chips implanted for security: Los microchips de identificación se implantarán en los más de 163 osos panda gigantes que mantiene China en cautividad. El objetivo es facilitar la protección de esta especie en peligro de extinción y evitar la endogamia.
