- Steve Ballmer says Microsoft won’t raise their Yahoo offer. How about a new slogan for Yahoo? Even our wins are actually losses.

- Surprise, surprise: Someone doesn’t think China has any reason to use Wikipedia, preferring instead the China-based Baidupedia. “It’s very natural for China to make its own products,” said scientist William Chang. Um, yeah . . . if the whole censorship thing doesn’t bug you.

- One last scary legally story, this time a bit closer to home: the FBI wants widespread monitoring of ‘illegal’ Internet activity.
