Hash: SHA1

eBay restricting Webslices to MSIE users, trashing Firefox users

,----[ Quote ]
| Again, I have no idea if this is made on purpose or not. If it is, it's a 
| true scandal. If it's not, and given the fact the Webchunks extension to 
| Firefox is freely available, it's a shame. Please note that the embedded 
| JavaScript shows no error or related warning... Please also note that if you 
| use a UAString-switcher in Firefox, the result remains the same; that's why I 
| think the client-sniffing is client-side and based on window.external.* MSIE 
| extensions. I hope that eBay is going to fix this as soon as possible, 
| because banning Firefox users seems to me a stupid and counter-productive 
| idea...        


Analyst: Yet Another Microsoft-Yahoo Scenario

,----[ Quote ]
| In a report Tuesday, Cowen & Co. Analyst Jim Friedland handicaps the 
| different iterations of possible Yahoo-Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) deals in light 
| of the dismal performance of Microsoft’s online-services unit last quarter. 
| The most likely scenario, according to Friedland? No deal at all. But if a 
| deal does take place, Friedland puts his bets on an arrangement which he 
| first floated last October in which Microsoft would trade its online services 
| business and possibly cash for a stake in Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO).       



Feeling the heat at Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.
