Is Google just freakin unstoppable when it comes to search and advertising? Probably! They just went through a bidding war with Microsoft, won, and dropped $3.1 BILLION dollars to buy DoubleClick. DC helps its customers place and track online advertising, including search ads. I think they’re also responsible for a lot of those Flash based ads… something Google doesn’t currently do. So now Google has text ads, and the Flash ads on lock down… good luck MS and Yahoo, you prolly won’t be catching Google in online ad revenue any time soon.

I’m a groovy cat who’s into technology, Eastern Thought, and house music. I’m a proud and dedicated father to the coolest little guy on the planet (seriously, I’m NOT biased). I’m fascinated by ninjas, the Internet, and anybody who can balance objects on their nose for long periods of time.
I have a utility belt full of programming languages and a database of all my knowledge on databases… I practice code fu. Oh, I’ve also done actual Kung Fu, and have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
