ebay buys mobile.de

It seems as if the „highscores“ in the last quarter of 2003 gave ebay the ability to buy europes biggest online carmarket mobile.de (austria, great britain, spain, france, sverige). It is a very good strategy of ebay, becoming europes biggest 2nd hand – online – car – dealer. ebay started its „ebaymotors.de“ last year. Friends, the worst thing is, i`ve just read this headline in my rdf-feed,but guess what? its gone, and i dont know from where it came! when i got thelink, i`ll post it here…

It is said, that details are from such high quality that you can see even sandkorns. Well, it was very interesting to know in which format the pictures are sent: How can you transfer such big pictures in such short time over millions of kilometres?

He will say just little about the worse situation in iraq; I think the cenatral themes will be of inner-political kind: he has to find a moderate position between the conservative and the democratic voters. maybe about health care? Anyway, let`s see, and if you are able to watch it: do it 😉

UDDI Webservices: future of the internet?

we all know about the major problem of the internet: find the right information you need. so, uddi.org is going to implement a new standard (basing on xml, …) to connect webservices. the goal i see in it, is to connect different businesses togehter: why should the internet customer book his flight, his hotel, his car,…, at different companies?connect them with one standard, and he gets nice holidays just by booking the hotel. the rest will be done automatically: based on the data the user filled in when booking the hotel, a car will be rented (by choosing the cheapest one from the different connected carcompanies), the flight will be booked (by choosing from the cheapest airline) and so on. it is a very interesting technology, and when you see, which companies stand behind it, you can guess, it will be a success (maybe..;-)
