Ballmer: Are you strong enough for more competition?

Recently News discuss with the Microsoft CEO about Microsoft competitor software company which developing a new and stable software for this coming years, namely, Linux, Apple and the looming threat from Google's Android and Chrome OS. But Ballmer the Microsoft CEO said ""Right now I just put it on the list for competitive completeness.". We're all know that Steve Ballmer is the new Microsoft CEO and the Microsoft's biggest economic engine, its Windows business.

And Ballmer added that "Any business that is as Windows deserves competition." Well I think he have the right to say that but for me He is so chesty as a peacock enough to be fall. The Windows System will get more competitor right now and it will held it into deep deep down and never to get out from the mess that Ballmer started.

However, he noted that the company still had work to do with the analysts, counting up the significant number of Macs in the crowd. "Don't hide it," he said. "I've already counted them. I've been doing it since we started talking...Feel free. As long as you are using Office go right on ahead." So Ballmer assumed that all computer savvy in the world still using his Golden Windows.

Earlier in his talk, Ballmer also walked through the economics of the search ad deal with Yahoo, highlighting its benefits to both companies, calling it a win-win.

Google Cache

Maybe you wondered why every time you tried to search in you notice that each entry you've search have the link "Cache" in the end of each excerpt line.

Well that is the Google cache feature of were you can view the snapshot of your website. And used this for examines version of your website as a back-up page. Yes back-up page that uses to judge if a page is a good match for your query.

But for me not all the time this is useful because this is not always updated and sometimes the link to that snapshot page is not always accurate specially if you have a dynamic website and always do an update to all your content.

So the released an option if you want to update the cached page of your website and prevent Google bot from caching the page in the future, you just add the noarchive meta tag to your header HTML file within tag. like this;

meta name="robots" content="noarchive"

and to prevent only Google from displaying one, use the following tag like this:

meta name="googlebot" content="noarchive">

(don't forget to put the <> tag between line of meta tag)

And that's it, you can control now your cache page in the Google search engine. Or once you done from adding this meta tag to your HTML File, you can use also the URL removal tool in Webmaster Tools of
