Last Week’s Gist (Review) – Crystal Web


Last week was extremely eventful. We heard fascinating stories that made our hearts race faster than usual.

Colonel Muammar Gaddafi

In the Wicked Wild World, the report of the clash of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and rebel forces continues. There were stories of bomb blasts, headless bodies and lots of lifeless bodies lying around.


On the World Wide Web, there were stories of likely poaching of high profile IT gurus as the struggle for ‘web power’ continues.

ZDNet has identified Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google and Amazon to be the likely victims of this poaching. Unfortunately, it is said that they have spent huge funds on recruitment and training.


On the World Wide Web, the search engine competition is growing fiercer. Bing and Yahoo have really gained pace on Google this year.

Bing has continued to improve on their services. The latest service brought by ‘bing’ is the ‘autosuggest flight prices’.

Also, PC World reported that in a bid to improve its travel search, Microsoft has formally taken as its travel search partner in an article, Will Microsoft Beat Google in the Travel Search Wars?

I hope your week was really cool. Let’s check out what was happening here at Crystal Web.
