Google–what you get for $400 a share

As of today Google is worth 100+ billion market cap and it got most of its
revenue just because of Advertising concept. Cnet has list of all Google
products and its rivals list competing. Yahoo, as of today is competing in all
product areas. MS is little late in this war Keywords advertising and Search
but shaping up well. There revenues keep on increasing and I don’t see major
threat to Google unless there is a big rock thrown on them in 2006. I wonder
what else could be the Google strategy to earn money other than advertising.

A Little Linux Joke

Son of Bill Gates asks his father:

– Dad, I’d like to try to have sex, what should I do?

– That’s simple, sonny. Just take the biggest car from my garage, dress
the best suit you have and take the girl into the most deluxe
restaurant in the town. Rent a horse chariot in the evening and take
her for a trip around the lake. Buy her the biggest bunch of flowers
you can buy. Finally rent a president suite and she’ll be yours. And
that’s all.

– But Dad! Where are the romantic walks, grazes, reading of poetry in the moonlight, flirting …

– My boy… all this was invented by the Linux folks so that they can have sex for free.

Firefox 1.5 Stability Problems?

Information week has posted the comments/ problems grouped from FF 1.5 users. For me I see memory usage as a big issue.

  • Firefox’s use of physical and virtual memory is exceptionally high.
  • CPU usage spikes to 100 percent (usually while loading a Web page).
  • The browser freezes up for seconds, minutes, or permanently.
  • The browser won’t launch until they remove an errant “firefox.exe” process in Task Manager.
  • The browser crashes suddenly (usually while loading a Web page).
  • The browser has trouble loading specific pages, but there’s no commonality among users as to which pages won’t load.
  • The initial launch of Firefox loads slower.
  • Third-party application hyperlinks (such as a link in an
    e-mail message) take a long time to open a new Firefox tab or to launch
    the browser.
