Yahoo launched “Fire Eagle”, a location-based social networking platform. The service allows users to keep their friend updated about where they are.
Yesterday many Gmail users have experienced problems in accessing their account. After several hours of outage the problem has been fixed and Google made a public apology for the issue.
Yahoo decided to increase the competition with Google by starting the beta of Zimbra, a web application that bundle the famous e-mail, calendar, contacts, and document services in one application. The most notorious feature of Zimbra is the possibility that users have to access this app even if they are not on-line.
