Facebook Counter Punches with it’s Own Allegations Against Yahoo

FacebookvYahoo

Yahoo's claim that Facebook infringed upon 10 of it's patents and countered with a suit of its own allegations including patent infringements on; photo tagging, advertising, online recommendations and more.  Facebook said it has been "irreparably harmed" by Yahoo's infringement.  At the end of the day its just a big song and dance for some bull-crap settlement.  Unfortunately, it looks as if Yahoo is trying to crash Facebooks 'coming out party' (going public). Unfortunately, Yahoo's suit looks desperate as Facebook has a rich and valuable patent portfolio.  Keep in mind, Yahoo used the same tactics against Google when they went public - They arn't only crashing the party, their stealing a keg or two. … [Read more...]

Despite the traffic volumes, this data sheds some light into how our lives have changed over 70 years; for example, the average man's salary was around $900 a year, we had half as many people in the US, the racial gap was insanely wide, we have this crazy thing called the internet, and the top two industries were Manufacturing and Agriculture.  You could call this progress, but will this retrospective call for simpler times?  What can we really learn from this data to help improve our country, today?
