There was a widespread rumor that Yahoo and Microsoft were engaged in finalizing a deal that will empower them to put up a brave fight against Googleâ€™s continuous offensives. Finally, this rumor appears to be true, as Microsoft has ultimately managed to cajole Yahoo into signing in a pact that will allow Microsoft to get full control of Yahoo! Search, the third most influential search engines besides Google and Bing. In return, Yahoo will act as the one and only advertising sales representative of both the companies.
This deal is being termed as revolutionary by both the companies. Actually, Yahoo was finding extremely difficult to retain its market share and in fact, virtually struggling in the online marketing industry. On the other hand, Microsoft was humiliated in Google hand after launching its much hyped decision search engine â€“ Bing. It has almost become desperate to increase its market share but finding it extremely difficult to achieve this goal single handedly. This agreement, according to Mr Ballmer, CEO of Bing, will provide better service for both the users and the consumers, as it will promote innovation and increase turnover at the end. There is no doubt in the fact that developers at Yahoo will no longer needed in Yahoo and they will either be transferred to Microsoft or they might be offered pink slips. This merger will definitely boost market income and increase efficiency at workplace that will play the role of a catalyst in countering the challenges of Google. Check out for more details on this deal.

Forty years have past since the first man landed on the surface of moon on 20 July 1969. It was a historic moment for the entire human race. It is a glorious feat that should be viewed again and again as it upholds the unyielding spirit of human beings. However, the video that captured those rare moments, when Neil Armstrong stepped out of the lunar excursion, were so poor in quality that it had almost become impossible for common people to figure out what is going on the screen. NASA was well aware of this disconcerting issue and that why it had undertaken an ambitious plan to restore those rare moments with the latest technological know how. It is really amazing to witness how advance video restoration technology like photo restoration technique can bring life back to a worn out video or pictures. Though NASA has to spend a whopping $230,000 on this restoration project, it has offered a unique opportunity to the entire human race to witness how a history has been made forty years back.
The original video footage was in a non standard format which cannot be broadcasted in TV channels. When this original video project was beamed back to earth, it had been converted into a TV friendly system. However, this conversion had degraded the quality of the original video footage drastically to mere movements of some shadowy figures. Three years have been spent in this project, which was headed by engineer Richard Nafzger and his team. They have made diligent search to collate footages from various sources such as Nasaâ€™s achieve vaults, CBS television studios of Houston etc. So far Nasa has succeeded in releasing 15 key moments from its ambitious restoration project, which is supposed to be completed on September 2009. Just check out this video, which is far better than those blurred images.
