The recent trend that has not just caught my attention but the wider audience (you guys) is the acquisition bug. Here’s an article that entails the recent and major acquisitions. Just quickly for those that love to skim read instead of clicking a link… eBay acquires Stumbleupon $75m, Google acquires Panoramio, CBS acquires Last.FM $280m and Fox acquires Photobucket and Flektor.

Australia…far away from everyone and everywhere…but still in the groove, or should I say ‘down with the 411’ LOL Here’s the top 60 web apps 2.0 in Australia. I was rather impressed and surprised at the list~

This issue has come up before, Youtube being banned in countries…here’s a list of countries + map that have banned Youtube…Victoria?? WTF?!

I covered Entropia in a previous post (link), but here’s some sweet news, Entropia’s coming to China! It says in the article also that Second Life was in the running but got pwned…lol I like the sound of Entropia better anyways…

MySpace to acquire Flektor, Yahoo Poker?! MySpace news…lame

Mid week madness prevails!

Let’s get straight onto the headlines!

Tech Love

The article first:                                                                                                                         MySpace will acquire Flektor, a service that allows users to create widgets from photos, video and text, I just created an account, just look up ‘daniellee’ to find me and my vids hehe. From what I can gather this is an awesome acquisition as Flektor is a very savvy service. Edit, photos, audio, webcam, movies and then integrate them from all your other web 2.0 accounts like flickr, myspace, photobucket and more! SWEET!

Yahoo! has just launched a play for money poker site! Interesting move this…Now while I do enjoy the odd game of poker I’m just shocked Yahoo! did this! Here’s the link to their poker site.

MySpace news as predicted, turns out to be a total lame launch. Here’s the article please remember to LOL

Today it was announced that MySpace would acquire PhotoBucket for the amount of $250million. What’s interesting was that at one stage MySpace actually had blocked PhotoBucket on profiles. now that they’re getting acquired there’s no need for a block and there’s all love in the building.
