Yahoo, Google vs. Vista, VisiTrieve and LINA! WOW!

So the big news a few days ago was the switching of Yahoo CEO's after some scandals surfaced surrounding certain affairs. This seems to bring about the question in my mind as to whether or not the former online giant will try to crash Google's party or if they will begin to specialize in a few things??? Only time will tell, but from a open-minded view, I think it might have been a good idea to allow a women to run Yahoo because it seems as though they are no longer setting the bar for the web, but are rather chasing after Google's dominance. Just me though!

A very recent news article on MSNBC.com ( here ) seems to be point out a very important fact surrounding a very familiar topic: the EU. Ever since the Google became scrutinized for not following antitrust laws established by the global powerhouse of the EU, they have been more than willing to push some of the blame and hardship off to other members of the technological community. Not trying to defend Microsoft too much here, but the search engine found in Vista is absolutely phenomenal and has made access to a huge library of music that much more simple! Thank you Microsoft. Hopefully this one is handled in a favorable manner for all.

VisiTrieve is an interesting program that may be of some great interest to people who love to have easy access to their history of browsing. Personally, I'm not a fan but I'm sure there a lot of people who have to see where they have visited and would love to be able to do so easily. VisiTrieve is for you, if you are that person!

Finally, LINA is a new open source software program designed to incorporate all OS's (Windows, Mac and Linux) for design and ease of use for everyone. This is a program to keep an eye out for and to research yourself. I will be looking into it further after the official release in July.

That's all for today! I apologize for the infrequent entries for this blog. I have been working to set up a new blog at WordPress and I'm beginning to find confidence in the set up. Have a look for yourself at OoMi (my new blog).

Enjoy the programs and the new blog and let me know your thoughts after you subscribe.

Have a great day!
