    Dell Buys Storage Company EMC in Biggest Tech Deal Ever

    Computer maker Dell Inc said on Monday it had agreed to buy data storage company EMC Corp in a $67 billion record technology deal that will unite two mature companies and create an enterprise tech powerhouse.The acquisition will help privately held Dell diversify away from a stagnant personal-computer market and give it greater scale in the faster-growing and more lucrative market for managing and storing data for enterprises.

    "Dell wants to become the old IBM Corp, a one-stop shop for corporate clients. That model fell apart a couple of decades ago. Reviving it would be a stunning coup for Dell," said Erik Gordon, clinical assistant professor at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business.The deal values EMC at $33.15 a share. Dell will pay $24.05 per share in cash and will also give EMC shareholders a special stock that tracks the share price in virtual software provider VMWare Inc.

    EMC shares surged 3.9 percent to $29.08 in premarket trading.The combination of Dell and EMC creates an enterprise solutions powerhouse," said Michael Dell, who will lead the combined company as chairman and chief executive.EMC's board has approved the merger and will recommend that shareholders do so as well.The merger agreement includes a 'go-shop' provision that allows EMC to solicit bids from other parties and pay a discounted breakup fee to Dell if a deal is made with another company, Reuters first reported on Sunday.

    While IBM Corp, Cisco Systems Inc and Hewlett-Packard Co could theoretically be potential suitors for EMC, which has a marker capitalization of $53.6 billion, the chances of them challenging Dell with a rival offer are slim, people familiar with the matter have told Reuters.The deal will be financed through a combination of new equity from Dell's owners - founder and Chief Executive Michael Dell, its investment firm MSD Partners, private equity firm Silver Lake and Singapore state-owned investor Temasek Holdings - as well as the issuance of the tracking stock, new debt and cash on hand.VMware will remain an independent, publicly traded company. VMware shares were unchanged at $78.65.

    The .TUBE gTLD Dispute Finally Came to An End

    The result of a new contention action administered by ICANN has led to the conclusion that not always big players of the market of domain names win. It took about three years to allow ICANN to award the license to Latin American Telecom instead of their rivals.The latter explained that their interest in the .TUBE string came in 2008 when they realized the huge potential it has for video content developers and that is why they took the decision to invest heavily in order to obtain it. After the registration of the new domain name, which is expected to happen within six to eight months period, thousands of requests will probably follow from people who will want to use their own “tubes” on the internet.

    This gTLD was not the only one this company has acquired in order to dedicate their efforts for the online television market. Other thousands of names have been purchased, but the .TUBE name is seen as having the biggest potential.This name will not only target television, but also the domains of plumbing, transport, electrical or construction. There are also famous stars who have their own tube channels and they may become interested in the new domain name, as an alternative to the classic .COM, .NET or .ORG extensions.

    Disney wins starwars.co.uk net domain battle

    The starwars.co.uk web residence now leads users to a Jokers’ Masquerade storeA Berkshire-based fancy-dress tradesman is being done to obey a starwars.co.uk web residence after feeling a force of Disney’s wrath.

    starwars.uk
    star-wars.uk
    star-wars.co.uk
    starwarsco.uk
    starwarsco.co.uk

    The association has until 21 Jul to confirm either to appeal.Disney skeleton to recover a initial of several new Star Wars cinema after this yearIf a new Star Wars films by Disney were not being released, we wouldn’t be carrying this discussion,” Mark Lewis, Abscissa’s arch executive, told a BBC.They wanted a starwars.uk domain, they haven’t [got it], and in hint they’ve thrown their teddies out of a pram.That’s how we feel. Are we disappointed? Yes. Are we surprised? Not necessarily.Walt Disney Company bought Lucasfilm – a prolongation association behind Star Wars – in 2012 for $4.1bn (£2.6bn).A orator pronounced that had it acquired all a egghead skill surrounding a Star Wars authorization as partial of a deal.Abscissa had attempted to urge a tenure of a domains by highlighting that it had used a starwars.co.uk and star-wars.co.uk addresses given 2003 but being challenged.
    It suggested that it was usually since Nominet had introduced shorter “name.uk” domains in 2014 that Disney had acted.Abscissa says that it sells legitimate and protected Star Wars sell from a website
    Last year, Nominet gave owners of .co.uk addresses a “first dibs” right-of-refusal to squeeze associated shorter domains – something Abscissa took advantage of.After being contacted by Disney’s lawyers, a tradesman offering to send a starwars.uk domain to a US media hulk if it could continue regulating starwars.co.uk and star-wars.co.uk to sell “legitimate Star Wars-branded merchandise”.However, Disney refused.Nominet requires dual contribution to be proven for it to determine to force a handover:The complainant has rights in honour of a name involvedThe stream registration is judged to be “abusive”

    Microsoft Wi-Fi aims to bring 'hassle-free' Internet to millions

    Microsoft is working on rolling out an updated and rebranded version of its Skype Wi-Fi service.We can confirm that Microsoft is working on a new service, called Microsoft Wi-Fi, that will bring hassle-free Wi-Fi to millions. We look forward to sharing additional detail when available," said a spokesperson in response to a request for comment about Microsoft Wi-Fi.Skype Wi-Fi is Microsoft's current service allowing users to pay with Skype Credits to access a variety of public Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide.Microsoft's new information pages about its consumer and business Microsoft Wi-Fi service offerings went live for a day or so before Microsoft cut access to them.

    The business-focused offering will be available to subscribers of Microsoft's Office 365 Enterprise service, according to information on its microsoftwifi.com/business site. That service will be available globally and will encompass "over 10 million" Wi-Fi hotspots.Microsoft also is working on a consumer-focused version of its new Wi-Fi service, which it plans to make available to active Skype Wi-Fi users "through the Microsoft Work & Play Bundle or the Surface 2 + Skype Wi-Fi bundle"; to Office 365 for Enterprise subscribers; and to customers who received a special promotional code for the service from Microsoft, the microsoftwifi.com site said.Microsoft also is lining up Microsoft Wi-Fi apps for Windows, Android, Mac OS X, iOS and Windows Phone users to access the coming service in airports, hotels, restaurants and other public spaces.

    Microsoft recently lost a trademark battle involving Skype to Sky. (It lost a similar trademark battle to Sky over SkyDrive and ended up changing the SkyDrive name to OneDrive, as a result.) Microsoft officials have indicated they'd pay Sky to be able to continue to use the Skype name, rather than change that brand name.
    However, the reason Microsoft is rebranding Skype Wi-Fi probably has more to do with the company's "One Microsoft" push than with Sky, from what I've heard. Microsoft is rebranding a number of its products and services in a way to emphasize they are part of the Microsoft brand, as opposed to standalone brands like Azure or Surface, as of late.This story originally posted as "Rebranded Microsoft Wi-Fi service is in the works" on ZDNet.
