MySpace recently now announced an exciting project: its own digital music portal competing with current market leaders iTunes and http://Amazon.com's MP3 store. They are currently negotiating with major record companies such as Warner Music, Sony, and Universal. According to reports, the pricing is "going to be very competitive." Also, many of the music downloads will come without any digital rights management technology, so that the users will be free to copy and use the music on any device.

This venture is almost certain to succeed since MySpace is the most popular social networking site among the huge and important demographic of North American teens, and has over 110 million registered users, 30 million of which regularly use the site's built-in music features.

Due to increasing bandwidth speeds, internet users enjoy video streaming and quick transfer of huge files. However, AT&T claims that the internet's structure will reach full capacity by 2010 unless large investments are made for its expansion. They project that the cost of this expansion will be 55 billion USD for the US network and 130 billion USD worldwide.

This seems like a huge exaggeration, but there is no doubt that there will come a point in the future when network expansion has to be done if current trends continue. Right now, most analysts concur that this will occur sometime between 2016 and 2018.

Since free web-based emails put some of my important emails in my bulk/spam folder, I regularly and faithfully check it to see if I have urgent mails redirected there (to think I receive hundreds in just 30 minutes).

I see all the time emails from "Google Business", so, thinking that this might be something important, I opened the mail. However, upon hollering my cursor over the link, I saw in my status bar that the URL is way too far from "www.google.com". In fact, it was from a social networking website called "Perfspot". Yes, the hackers have done it again. They used Google to retain the "legitimacy" of their email and redirect the link to their desired website (that sometimes automatically installs malware and Trojans).

With the different economic crises happening all over the world, epitomized by the recent recession in the United States, who would ever thought that the market for company servers won't get affected? It's true that companies did a little cost cutting on the side, but they never dared to cut of their server costs--in fact, server sales grew in the first quarter! Companies saw the need of technological integration to further their business success, thus, investing more on web content and other web-based mobile devices. HP was the leader in server sales, making $4.01 billion (10.3% increase compared to last year).

I am sure most of you are familiar with Bluetooth technology. Most of your devices do have this since it's the fastest way to connect and transfer files from one device to the other. But have you ever thought of how "Bluetooth" got its name? Just a little tidbit of history, Bluetooth is the English name of Danish King Harald Blatand (King Harold Bluetooth in English). He is said to have united all the division in ancient Norway, Denmark and Sweden in the 10th century. Just like what the techie Bluetooth does, it integrates (unites or connect) a wide range of different devices for a faster, more stable connectivity. On May 22, 2008, Bluetooth (technology) will also celebrate its 100th year anniversary.
