Opposite to what I thought at a first time, five days ago Pixelotto has been release and collected in that day, more than 80 thousand dollars, with many mini banners in the site. There is no doubt that Alex Tew has businessman’s blood.
About Pixelotto’s release, that same day the BBC published an article about what Alex Tew did in the past. They tell that Alex didnâ€™t want to invest in other business ideas, but in buying a house. Could the best business be, the one in which we donâ€™t invest?
The company of statistics web Compete, has published an interesting post that shows us which are the 20 most popular web sites of The United States. The interesting thing is that only this elite of 20 websites overcame 20 million unique visitors in the last October. The graph clarifies it:
Few weeks ago I comment at Noovo, about this surprising html web editor, created by a small Korean company as a great application for web sites.
Well then, a lot of time did not happen and already the competition arose: Weebly. I am not going to comment about the System in deed, since it has many deficiencies if we compare it with others (and itâ€™s not beta). Nevertheless, here we have a video that shows us quickly which are the characteristics by creating a web in 3 minutes.
A very good html template collection for Business Web Sites.
After years, the open source and proprietary software bring positions over. Microsoft has signed an agreement with Novell, who will lead them to collaborate in three basic items:
First, both companies sign a peace treatment on lawsuits for patents. Of course that will not concern Dell’s accusation against Microsoft raised in 2004, but from now Microsoft will not sue for violation of patents not even to particular developers of Linux.
Secondly, they will work together for compatibility not only on office automation products MS Office and Open Office, but also the operative systems, to facilitate the use of Windows and Suse simultaneously in the same machine.
Forrester’s report defends the capacities and knowledge of mature workers as company assets.
In opposition with the British press and blogsphere that have filled lately with commentaries about how the path of new technologies, in continuous transformation, needs young workers, in conditions to fight with the digital age; now Forrester’s report tries to finish with this attitude of scorn towards the major IT workers.
The affirmation that claims that mature people have difficulties to adapt to technology is “irresponsible and simply false”, as Phil Murphy makes clear in his report, directed to “avoiding the war” between young and mature workers.
According to Web serverâ€™s last statistics elaborated by NetCraft, there are more than 100 million web sites in the whole world. As you can see in the graph, the growth has been enormous principally in the last 2 years. In August, 1995 they existed near than 19 thousand sites, in 2004 near than 50 million web sites and know more than 100 million.
According to the web statistics company, the main cause of this explosive growth of last two years, are blogs and small business web sites. Can you even imagine that? I do.
Windows Media Player 11 (definitive version), is already available to download. About the characteristics there is no much to say (thereâ€™s bookshop and online shop improvement). But what bring my attention are the very fresh and renewed design and the simple but elegant interface, which gives signs of what is going to be the next Windows Vista.
As you read and after a lot time of pressures. The CEO of Sun MicroSystem, Jonathan Schwartz, has officially announced that they will offer Java under a license approved by the Open Source Initiative.
The term about they think to take it to end is 30 to 60 days, in other words for Christmas Java will be an Open Source platform. It is necessary to mention that Sun’s decision was a discontentedly one, as a result to the pressure got for a group of developers (Tim Bray, Simon Phipps and Graham Hamilton between others) and IBM, who thought to initiate a Java opened version and distributed it under an Apache 2.0 license.
Digg is for sale and not precisely for bargain. Michael Arrington asks for his creation the amazing quantity of 150 million dollars, something that doesnâ€™t seem to convince the possible buyers, between whom (it is said) is News Corporation.
And even when nobody denies that Digg should be one of the Web 2.0 pioneers, is discussed that they have so much traffic as says. Digg assures they have 20 million unique users a month and continue increasing. But ComScore’s external statistics, registered in September only 1.3 millions unique users, and a growth reduced from April. Of course, ComScore is not excessively trustworthy, but the difference is too big.
The certain thing is that, sooner or later, Digg was going to sell. Simply it doesnâ€™t turn out to be profitable and there is no one who supports the costs of broad band that they suppose. To have an idea, it is supposed that they use 75 servers to do the work of 25.
