"I think it's a great, great deal for Skype. I think it's a great deal for Microsoft," - Bill Gates

Bill Gates – Microsoft founder and former CEO has confirmed that he was one of the key behind Microsoft’s decision to purchase Skype for $8.5 billion. Gates as speaking to the BBC stated that he “I was a strong proponent at the board level for the deal being done”, “I think it’s a great, great deal for Skype. I think it’s a great deal for Microsoft,” he added.

Skype enables its users to contact each other over the internet for free, while charging for calls made to both traditional landline phones and mobiles, which why Google also had been closing in on Skype before Microsoft came in to scoop up the IP-telephony service and its 600 million users.

Share holders and investor criticize and questioned the logic of the deal and suggested the software giant is paying far too much. But for Gates to backup the decision of buying Skype, we hope Microsoft will not fail in future.

It’s amazing how Internet has evolved from a military project to a world wide phenomenon. And yes kids, there was a time when there was no internet. Consider yourselves lucky that doing homework, research, shopping, dating, and Family Guy episode viewing can be done with a couple of keyboard actions and a click of a mouse. Although it does have its downsides as we’ve been introduced to the horrors of Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black.

Although the history of the internet can fill up an entire book as long as one of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings book, the Grasshopper Group managed to concoct a short and sweet infographic to somehow explain the chronology of the technology even for people with the shortest of short term attention span when it comes to reading.

"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices." ---Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software

Opera announced that they’ll be coming up with Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. The new Opera solution will be sporting HTML 5, OIPF and HbbTV support. However, Flash isn’t announced yet, but we’re wishing it will be included upon release.

“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony.

OCZ finally lets go of the DRAM market, iGUGU and Vulkano tries to impress us with their versions of Internet TV, plus Samsung may be on to something with their RF4289 Refrigerator.

Let’s start things up with OCZ. What’s up OCZ? After a decade of being a pretty nice provider of the world’s finest DRAM, it looks like the company is pulling the plug on that department and decides to focus more on their SSD products. After receiving several competition where speed and prices usually dictate the winner, it seems like getting too much competition on one single desktop hardware makes it hard for one to truly succeed.
