2009 -The year gone by

2009While bidding adieu to 2009, lot of things come to my mind. On the personal front it has been a mixed year of sorts. I got my Engineering Degree finally which was good in one way but bad in another. Good because it would put an end to exams (atleast for now as I don’t intend to pursue my PG immediately) and Bad because I had graduated in a year when recession had gripped the whole world which meant I am still waiting for my joining date 🙁 .. However 6 months of Joblessness meant I could devote more time on my blog and watch lot of movies 🙂

Microsoft Acquires 23% stake in Google

Yes you saw it right. When I too came to know of the news I too was as shocked and surprised as you are right now reading this. Microsoft had called for an urgent press conference at the company headquarters in Redmond, Washington and the press was stupefied to see Steve Ballmer, the CEO of Microsoft and Eric Schmidt, the CEO of internets largest search Engine Company Google sitting next to each other on the dais. This was only the first of the many shocks and there were many more to come.
