 2008 – Mozilla takes a new marketing step as they announce they want to break the Guinness world records for downloads in a 24 hour period of release. A grand idea, however, it was slightly hampered by the fact that the servers didn’t come up at 10 AM. The bug was fixed and they got the record of 7 million downloads.

March 20, 2005: Yahoo Acquires Photo Site Flickr

 

 2005- Yahoo acquires Ludicorp and the popular photo sharing site Flickr. No details were released on this purchase.
