+ - Microsoft to buy back $40bn of its shares

Submitted by phantomflanflinger
phantomflanflinger (832614) writes "As you may have heard already, Microsoft have announced their intentions to buy back $40 billion in stock from their investors, in the biggest single buy-back plan in business history. The announcement has given Microsoft shares a small gain but they still stand significantly below their level in January — before Microsoft's unsolicited bid for Yahoo!. The announcement of the plan has also created new speculation about a now-or-never deal with Yahoo!."

phantomflanflinger (832614) writes "The Cern Laboratory, home of the Large Hadron Collider, is fast becoming one of the coolest places in the Universe.

According to news.bbc.co.uk, the Large Hadron Collider is entering the final stages of being lowered to a temperature of 1.9 Kelvin (-271C; -456F) — colder than deep space.

The LHC aims to re-create the conditions just after the Big Bang and continue the search for the Higgs boson."

+ - Complacency 'rife' in European IT projects

Submitted by phantomflanflinger
phantomflanflinger (832614) writes "According to the BBC, many European IT workers are not being held responsible for delivering projects late.

The study was conducted by Hewlett Packard and the Economist Intelligence Unit which spoke to 1,125 professionals worldwide.

The three most common causes for delay were outsourcing, changing priorities half way through a project and poor co-ordination between managers."

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
