Danny Sullivan / Search Engine Land:
Yahoo's Poor Ad Targeting & Thoughts On Google-Yahoo  —  Previously, I wrote of how Yahoo's recent press day proved disappointing to me.  Time for part two of that: how the Google-Yahoo ad deal is supposed to help Yahoo.  Oh, it might, but not for the reasons Yahoo put out — the idea it would somehow get advertisers it was missing.

Vincent Laforet / Vincent Laforet's Blog:
Something Very Interesting is coming...both to this blog and to our industry  —  COPYRIGHT LAFORET VISUALS INC. DO NOT COPY *(See Note at the end of this article)  —  I had it in my hands for less than 72 hours before I had to send it back - but the time I did have with a prototype …
Chicago Tribune:

Ernesto / TorrentFreak:
The Pirate Bay Tops 15 Million Peers  —  Today, The Pirate Bay reached a new milestone, as they now have more than 3 million registered users.  On top of that, they track close to 15 million unique peers.  The largest BitTorrent tracker just keeps growing and growing, and there is no sign that this will be put to a halt anytime soon.
