The Friday Update

By - April 07, 2006

Yahoo updates MyWeb. I really think the concepts are sound here. And I still think the concepts are ahead of the community. For now.

The Base rollouts continue. Read/Write has a nice list.

MSN Search goes down.

Zimbra gets nearly $15 million in funding. Holy sh*t. Might this be the….Writely effect? And YouTube gets $8mm. Might this be the….er….YouTube effect?!

We knew this was coming: Yahoo is testing relevance rank in YPN, its AdWords competitor.

SJ Merc: If Inc. were a band, it would be ‘Nsync.

Fred wants a Tredoputer. I do too. No, wait, something about this is just plain WRONG….

GM self serve ads get hammered. But GM sees the silver lining.
