On occasion, it’s nice to be able to get caught up on some of the most recent developments in the field of online advertising without having to go to a bunch of different places or read any of my droll commentary. Therefore, I bring you a new segment called “Tues News.”
Despite the slow economy and the general lackadaisical attitude that people can get during the summer, it seems that the Big Three (Google, Yahoo and MSN) are still as busy as ever.
Here are some great articles that will get you caught up right away on the goings on of the online goers:
- Google seems to have won a battle for user privacy in their fight with Viacom over YouTube video uploads.
- Carl Icahn continues to pull his hair out over Yahoo’s lack of success in striking a deal with Microsoft.
- The agreement between Google and Yahoo will face serious investigation under monopoly laws and is given a nice overview in this column by AdAge.
Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open for further developments with these three issues in particular. It seems funny when you think about it, but the eventual outcomes to these three situations will likely have immense ramifications on larger issues like personal privacy, anti-trust law and the fate of online search and advertising.
Thanks for stopping by. Read up on and keep up with the online world; keep reading Tues News! Catch ya later!
