Thanks for stopping by for another version of Tues News. Unfortunately, we don’t have a cool theme today, however, there is definitely some interesting news to peruse. Without further ado, let’s check it out:
- Do you hate spam? Probably. The problem is, apparently one in 12.5 million people actually like these invasive, annoying emails. A new study from the UK’s TechRadar shows that as long as this minuscule percentage of people decide to buy the product that the spam is selling, we’re probably stuck with it. Bummer!
- It looks like Yahoo is still in some pretty hot water. In an update on Yahoo’s dealings with Icahn, Microsoft, Google and the Yahoo shareholders, CNET reveals that Yahoo is more than $73 million behind the eight ball after what has been a financially disatrous 2008 for the Internet giant. I’ll keep rooting for Yahoo as hard as ever to bounce back, but I don’t think I’ll be buying any stock anytime soon…
- It looks like Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, is out of the race to be President-elect Barack Obama’s first CTO of the US. In an interview with Matt Cramer of CNBC’s “Mad Money,” Schmidt reiterated his happiness with Google and his reluctance to leave.
With the economy the way it is and the scapegoating that’s likely to take place in the next couple of years, I might not be champing at the bit to shack up in DC anytime soon, either. You hear that, Barack? I’m staying at Wpromote, so don’t even ask! I know you wanted to, but I’m not going anywhere.
That’s it for today’s version of the Tues News. Read up on and keep up with the online world; keep reading Tues News! Catch ya later!
