    Thanks Vanessa. This week all are interesting and important news. Not sure whether Yahoo overthrows Google in terms of unique US visitors is that relevant. It’s just visitors and may be the result of overspent ad campaign. Those who use Google hardly leaves and don’t count in the Yahoo! May be the newbies looking for search engines landed in Yahoo 🙂

    Oh boy, that Mark Zuckerberg is highly ambitious. He will not settle for the giant that is Facebook. He wants more! And hell must be freezing over if Yahoo is really bigger than Google. How does that happen?

    Google beaten by Yahoo, that’s interesting news for sure. I want if its a new trend, or just a blip? what do you think it could signify?
    The Zuckerberg initiative sounds like more of a business or PR move than an attempt to better the world…though I might just be too cynical.
    Overall, a good update. Quick and gets to the key points.
