Niet hardware/gaming related maar misschien wel interessant aangeziend de halve wereldbevolking een homepage bij Geocities heeft. Geocites wordt dus overgenomen door Yahoo. In één klap de grootste online communit. The Register heeft er wat info over:
Speaking to analysts earlier today, Tim Koogle, chairman and CEO of Yahoo!, said: "This is a substantial and strategic acquisition that will culminate in a powerful and complementary alliance.
"Through this acquisition, we are accelerating our global leadership position by combining two of the Web's strongest brands and most heavily used services into one powerful offering."
With more than 3.5 million sites and a user base of more than 19 million people, GeoCities has built up one of the Web's largest online communities.
According to Nick Gibson, an analyst at Durlacher, the deal is all about being able to say who has the largest user base.
