BBC News reports Google will ban advertisements for essay writing services, from its advertising forum. The ban occurred following numerous complaints from University authorities whose students submitted copied reports and essays.

Professor Drummond Bone, president of Universities UK commented on the news saying, "Making life harder for these cynical web 'essay mills' is a step in the right direction. We welcome this move. Essay writing sites claim that students pay hundreds of pounds for model answers – but do not then submit these as their own work. We all know this claim is absurd."

UK Telegraph says “according to silicon valley gossip” Yahoo! is in talks to buy Bebo, a social networking site created by Michael Birch and Xochi Birch.

Other reports say, "Yahoo! is rumoured to be weighing a $1 billion (£500m) bid for Bebo, the privately owned social networking site, after shuffling its management team to better place itself for acquisitions….Given Bebo’s strength in Britain, an approach by Yahoo! would be likely to involve Toby Coppel, the Yahoo! executive who previously led the company’s global mergers and acquisitions team and was recently appointed managing director of the group’s operations in Europe."

A post in WebmasterWorld says Yahoo! has deleted all his 2005 PPC data. The report says:

Vecosys suggests rumors are floating about Google's pending purchase of Feedburner.

A user comments "I am shocked that nobody has yet snapped up feedburner. Great product, great features and great audience. When i see the money paid for absoulte shit companies, feedburner is a pure gem." In contrast another says "I hope that Google doesn’t ruin feedburner with the integration of ads into feeds. However, this acquisition does open the way for a new ‘independent’ feedburner equivalent to steal the show – but that’s if site owners can be bothered to migrate away."
