Advertising revenue from YouTube is likely to total about $200 million this year and thus fall short of parent company Google's expectations, The Wall Street Journal said on Tuesday, citing two sources familiar with the matter.
Just days away now from the release of Apple's next generation iPhone, the so-called iPhone 3G. And if the first one was dubbed the "Jesus Phone" because of the overwhelming hype, hope and promise of that device, then this new one is quite literally iPhone's Second Coming.
Microsoft threw its weight behind investor Carl Icahn's effort to dump Yahoo's board, saying Monday that a successful shareholder rebellion would encourage the software maker to renew its bid to buy Yahoo's Internet search engine or possibly the entire company.
