Do It Right The First Time; Do Not Use Microsoft-Contrived Version Targeting

Microsoft announced in January that Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) would be standards-compliant, but only if you included a special meta tag or http header indicating that the page should be rendered in standards compliance mode. The uproar from the standards community led Microsoft to change the default behavior of IE8. Now IE8 will render all pages in standards mode by default, unless you specify otherwise with the X-UA-Compatible meta tag or http header. Interestingly, the Microsoft followers did not seem to feel short-changed as the standards advocates had.

Google Buys DoubleClick for 3.1 Billion

Google reached an agreement to buy DoubleClick for $3.1 billion in cash, the companies announced. DoubleClick, an early pioneer in online advertising, was taken private by two private equity firms, Hellman & Friedman and JMI Equity, in a deal valued at $1.1 billion in 2005. "Acquiring DoubleClick expands Google’s business far beyond algorithm-driven ad auctions into a relationship-based business with Web publishers and advertisers." Perhaps the sale amount is a nod to now owning it all... The human genome consists of an estimated 3.1 billion base pairs that make up our DNA.
