Yahoo to expand user mailboxes to 1 GB

Trying to keep up with the growing competition with gmail, yahoo has decided to increase the mailbox here for a detailed story.

And yahoo is up to lift up its user interface too. And how do they do that ? Yet another buy! They have bought a email provider oddPost

Seems yahoo is up for a tight competition with Google. And the popular question out there seems to be, "whats Microsoft going to do now?". I still have just 2 MB in hotmail!!! shame on MS!

Flickr now shouts Yahoo!

Flickr is now Yahoo!'s property.

Yahoo seems to have finalized an agreement with LudiCorp to acquire the company, including flickr

Must be yet another attempt from yahoo to catch up with the search giant google.

Google has picasa under its belt, and so yahoo went for flickr

by the way, did I mention flickr in dutch means "gay" ?

Second day at MAX 2005

Had some insights about the way Flash Lite player can work. Bill Perry showed some of the samples developed for mobiles. Was cool. Got an idea. will have to do some thinking about it over the weekend and try doing something. May be KP will lend his phone to test the stuff.

Seems Google Labs had something called googleX.. Poor me, I dint have a chance to see that first hand. Read about it only after they removed it. Seems Apple had plans to move over it legally, so Google just took it off. But the idea seemed to be cool :-) And I desperately wanted to know, if they had done the genie effect in google using Flash :-)

Here is the story about it:

And here is a lucky soul who had first hand look at GoogleX, and was nice enough to post about it!

Would have loved to see that.. Wish I get to see it sometime...

MAX 2005

Attended MAX 2005 today at Le Meridean. There were soo many differences this time..

Last year, when I attended MAX, I was still with EI DESIGN. I was sent to MAX as a representative of EI DESIGN. And just about a month after the MAX, I came out, to join Ascendum. That time I was soo excited to talk to see people there.. I got Brajeshwar's card, talked to him for a while, tried to talk to Mike Downey, but couldnt get a chance... And was completely pissed off when I paid 750 bucks and they dint give me a T shirt!! Besides all that I felt soo proud to have seen people live.. James Talbot, Mike Downey.. I just went back to EI D and boasted off a lot about seeing all those people!

Come MAX 2005, things have changed soo much!! I feel even more prouder this time :-) When people were saying all that "shits" and "wows" seeing each feature, It made me feel soo cool, being one of the very few, to actually work with the same features for weeks :-) And besides all that, I did have a chit chat with James Talbot, Greg, and Bill.. the MM jacket made me that valuable :-D

It seems people are very excited with the sneak peeks they had today, about the next version of Flash (I am not revealing the code name:-))) ) is going to be a huge hit, for sure!

Hail Flash nxt version (aah haa... I'm not going to tell the code name:-) )
