Board Games That Scarred Me For Life

Jason Kaneshiro writes about childhood board game traumas: “I have a depressing childhood memory of playing Monopoly with a friend and running out of money. I wanted to quit but my buddy kept lending me cash – a little bit at a time – which I would instantly lose in the next few moves. He basically had ownership of the entire board. The result is a complete phobia of debt which persists to this day. Lesson learned: Capitalism is evil.”

Microsoft Revenue is $16 Billion in Fourth Quarter

“Microsoft said that net income for the period ended in December rose to $4.7 billion, or 50 cents a share, from $2.6 billion or 26 cents a share in the same period a year earlier. Revenue rose 31% to $16.37 billion. Revenue, however, includes $1 million deferred previously due to delays in getting Vista to consumers.”

Google to kill Domain Tasting

Jay Westerdal reports from an “inside source” that Google will prohibit Adsense advertising on all domans in the first five days after they are registered. “This potential new policy change by Google could stop all Domain Tasting in its tracks. The Add Grace Period (AGP) is a time period when registrars can delete a domain at no cost, but in this time frame a registrant could register millions of these temporary domains and place Google Adsense for Domains on them. The result is the ability to produce millions of temporary websites that literally generate millions of dollars in income per week for Google.”
