Funny Domains By Microsoft & Google!

Hi friends,

I think 70% of us have an idea about Microsoft's current web search engine, (formerly Live Search, Windows Live Search, and MSN Search & is advertised as a "decision engine"). When you look into the Whois Record for, you can see this dot com domain is registered by Microsoft Corporation [No wonder :)]. No problem @ all. Now here comes the funny thing related to When I was surfing the internet, I noticed an article says “ is owned by Microsoft”. When I try to open this domain, it was redirected to Bing Search Engine with the search keyword “fuckbing”. I think it's their trick to get more attention to bing :) [When a person who are angry at bing, and type that website in, will be redirect to bing instead..Great!]. Don't think there exists only 1 domain among this category. Microsoft has been main topic for jokes all over the net . so this time microsoft played it safe by buying the related domains to their new search engine “Bing”.
Below are some of funny domains related to Bing by Microsoft Corporation (Whois Record Snap also Given).

Domain Name : (Whois)


Domain Name : (Whois)


Do you think this type of domains only by Microsoft. No...This field also covered by Renowned Google Inc. In the same way of Microsoft, Google also owns one of the Domain Name.... (Whois)


See this list is not complete. You can see this type of funny domains by many other IT/Non-IT Giants. Only you need some time & an Internet Connection...:)

Go With Google Go!

Hi friends,

Finally Google came with it's own Programming Language named "Go". It was released under an open source license. Google is no stranger to the open source world. The company has released the underlying code for several of its tools and services under open source licenses over the years. At first glance, Go looks a bit like C++, but borrows some elements, such as garbage collection, from scripting languages like Python and JavaScript. But Go’s real standout feature is its speed. A demo video on YouTube shows the entire language — over 120K lines of code — compiling in under 10 seconds.

Like many of Google’s open source projects, Go began life as a 20 percent time project (the time Google gives its engineers to experiment) and evolved into something more serious. Go has been in development for over two years now, but Google is hoping that, by releasing Go under a BSD-style license, a community will develop and build Go into a viable choice for software development.

In its Go FAQ, Google explains the main motivations behind the project:

“No major systems language has emerged in over a decade, but over that time the computing landscape has changed tremendously. There are several trends:

- Computers are enormously quicker but software development is not faster.

- Dependency management is a big part of software development today but the “header files” of languages in the C tradition are antithetical to clean dependency analysis—and fast compilation.

- There is a growing rebellion against cumbersome type systems like those of Java and C++, pushing people towards dynamically typed languages such as Python and JavaScript.

- Some fundamental concepts such as garbage collection and parallel computation are not well supported by popular systems languages.

- The emergence of multicore computers has generated worry and confusion.”

Google Says,

Go is....

  1. simple

  2. fast

  3. safe

  4. concurrent

  5. fun &

  6. open source

Then what are you waiting for? Go for it @

Project 10^100 : 16 "big ideas"

Google has finally whittled down the more than 150,000 ideas submitted as part of its Project 10^100 to 16 themes that will compete for $10 million in funding. It's taken far longer than Google had originally anticipated, but the results of the company's 10th anniversary project to solicit ideas that could change the world are ready for inspection. Google is asking the public to vote on the most worthy of the 16 "idea themes" that it has identified from the submissions it has received over the past year.

“We hoped to capture the imagination of people around the world and offer a way to bring their best ideas to fruition. We were overwhelmed by the response — you sent us more than 150,000 ideas (approximately 10^5.2) in more than 25 languages and it took more than 3,000 Googlers in offices around the world to review the submissions,” Google announced. “We’ve pooled similar ideas into a set of 16 top idea themes aimed at addressing some important common goals, from making government more transparent to driving innovation in public transport.”

Because there were so many submissions, Google has decided to group them together into 16 different overall theme ideas. Also, they’re asking you to vote to help figure out which of the 16 themes the project’s advisory board should be looking at to pick the 5 projects that will get funded.

Here’s the full list of 16 themes to choose from:

- Encourage positive media depictions of engineers and scientists
- Build better banking tools for everyone
- Work toward socially conscious tax policies
- Collect and organize the world’s urban data
- Create more efficient landmine removal programs
- Drive innovation in public transport
- Build real-time, user-reported news service
- Make educational content available online for free
- Create real-time natural crisis tracking system
- Make government more transparent
- Help social entrepreneurs drive change
- Provide quality education to African students
- Create genocide monitoring and alert system
- Enhance science and engineering education
- Promote health monitoring and data analysis
- Create real-world issue reporting system

Voting will end on October 8, at which point the the advisory board will pick the five finalists which Google will then reveal. Then it will ask for proposals from individuals or organizations that want to help implement these ideas.

IT Companies' Lucky Names : How did they get it?

Hi Friend,

Have you ever noticed that How the IT Giants' name came from? Here I list how did they get their lucky names. Here We go.....

Google an originally accidental misspelling of the word "googol" and settled upon because was unregistered. Googol was proposed to reflect the company's mission to organize the immense amount of information available online.

YAHOO! – The word Yahoo was invented by Jonathan Swift and used in his book Gulliver's Travels. It represents a person who is repulsive in appearance and barely human. Yahoo! founders David Filo and Jerry Yang jokingly considered themselves yahoos. It's also an interjection sometimes associated with United States Southerners' and Westerners' expression of joy, as alluded to in commercials that end with someone singing the word "yahoo". It is also sometime jokingly referred to by its backronym, Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.

Microsoft – coined by Bill Gates to represent the company that was devoted to microcomputer software. Originally christened Micro-Soft, the '-' disappeared on 3/2/1987 with the introduction of a new corporate identity and logo. The "slash between the 'o' and 's' [in the Microsoft logo] emphasizes the "soft" part of the name and conveys motion and speed."

Oracle – Larry Ellison, Ed Oates and Bob Miner were working on a consulting project for the CIA. The code name for the project was Oracle. The project was designed to use the newly written SQL database language from IBM. The project was eventually terminated but they decided to finish what they started and bring it to the world. Later they changed the name of the company, Relational Software Inc., to the name of the product.

Sun Microsystems – its founders designed their first workstation in their dorm at Stanford University, and chose the name Stanford University Network for their product, hoping to sell it to the college. They didn't.

– from "Accent on the future". The name Accenture was proposed by a company employee in Norway as part of an internal name finding process (BrandStorming). Before January 1, 2001, the company was called Andersen Consulting

Adobe Systems – from the Adobe Creek that ran behind the house of co-founder John Warnock.

Alcatel-Lucent – Alcatel was named from Société Alsacienne de Constructions Atomiques, de Télécomunications et d'Electronique. It took over Lucent Technologies in 2006.

AltaVista – Spanish for "high view". – founder Jeff Bezos renamed the company Amazon (from the earlier name of after the world's most voluminous river, the Amazon. He saw the potential for a larger volume of sales in an online (as opposed to a bricks and mortar) bookstore. (Alternative: Amazon was chosen to cash in on the popularity of Yahoo, which listed entries alphabetically.)

AMD – Advanced Micro Devices

Amiga Corporation - The original developers of the 16-bit Amiga computer chose the name, which means a 'female friend' in Spanish and Portuguese, because it sounded friendly, and because it came before rivals (Apple Inc. and Atari) alphabetically

AOL – from America Online. The company was founded in 1983 as Quantum Computer Services.

Apache – according to the project's 1997 FAQ: "The Apache group was formed around a number of people who provided patch files that had been written for NCSA httpd 1.3. The result after combining them was A PAtCHy server."

Apple – For the favorite fruit of co-founder Steve Jobs and/or for the time he worked at an apple orchard, and to distance itself from the cold, unapproachable, complicated imagery created by other computer companies at the time – which had names such as IBM, DEC, Cincom and Tesseract

Apricot Computers – early UK-based microcomputer company founded by ACT (Applied Computer Techniques), a business software and services supplier. The company wanted a "fruity" name (Apple and Acorn were popular brands) that included the letters A, C and T. Apricot fit the bill.

Aricent – communications software company name created in 2006 by combining two words "arise" and "ascent".

ARM Limited – named after the microprocessor developed by small UK company Acorn as a successor to the 6502 used in its BBC Microcomputer. ARM originally stood for Acorn Risc Machine. When the company was spun off with backing from Apple and VTI, this was changed to Advanced Risc Machines. – search engine formerly named after Jeeves, the gentleman's gentleman (valet, not butler) in P. G. Wodehouse's series of books. Ask Jeeves was shortened to Ask in 2006.

Asus – named after Pegasus, the winged horse of Greek mythology. The first three letters of the word were dropped to get a high position in alphabetical listings. An Asus company named Pegatron, using the spare letters, was spun off in 2008.

AT&T – the American Telephone and Telegraph Corporation officially changed its name to AT&T in the 1990s.

ATI – Array Technologies Incorporated

Siemens – founded in 1847 by Werner von Siemens and Johann Georg Halske. The company was originally called Telegraphen-Bau-Anstalt von Siemens & Halske.

Skype – the original concept for the name was Sky-Peer-to-Peer, which morphed into Skyper, then Skype.

Intel – Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore initially incorporated their company as N M Electronics. Someone suggested Moore Noyce Electronics but it sounded too close to "more noise". Later, Integrated Electronics was proposed but it had already been taken, so they used the initial syllables (INTegrated ELectronics). To avoid potential conflicts with other companies with similar names, Intel purchased the name rights for $15,000 from a company called Intelco. (Source: Intel 15 Years Corporate Anniversary Brochure)
