The Browser Wars: By 1995 the Netscape Navigator browser dominated the market. On December 7, 1995, Microsoft C.E.O. Bill Gates gave a speech to his employees outlining Microsoftâ€™s aggressive new approach to the Internet. He named Netscape as a target and rallied a team of top-notch programmers to build Internet Explorer. The event is known in the industry as Pearl Harbor Day.
Joe Lieberman is a war hawk, plain and simple. He staunchly supports George Bush’s War in Iraq and John McCain’s plan to stay in Iraq for 100 years.

This is an update to a recent article titled â€œIs the Release of Obamaâ€™s Seal Presumptuous? NOâ€¦just presidential!â€ Barack Obamaâ€™s presidential campaign is retiring a presidential seal that made its debut at a Chicago event last week. â€œIt was a one-time seal for a one-time use,â€ Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Leaders from oil-producing and oil-consuming nations met in Saudi Arabia Sunday to try to pinpoint the reasons behind the rise in oil prices, which have doubled over the past year, and to find ways to bring them down. I canâ€™t be sure but I donâ€™t think that there was any mention of â€œdark markets, oil specualtors or the Enron Loopholeâ€â€¦why do you think that might be?
