Mozilla and Samsung have announced a partnership to build a new web browser engine for ARM devices and Android, Servo. Mozilla says the new engine will take advantage of “tomorrow’s faster, multi-core” computing architectures, casting aside “old assumptions” about how a browser engine should work.
Blink is to be an open-source rendering engine that will in time deviate from WebKit. Key goals with Blink include performance and simplicity. Google also believes this fork and more rendering engines will spur further innovations than most everyone relying upon WebKit. Google’s routine fighting with Apple is also likely another reason for parting ways with upstream WebKit.
Wow – quite some announcements at the same day!

The only deal that makes sense is to sell the whole of Vodafone to Verizon.
That is obvious.
The main people it does not make sense to are the Vodafone senior management.
So I will suggest a solution for Mr Colao.
The deal should be done with termination payments – huge ones – maybe a cumulative half a billion dollars.
That’s how much Vodafone shareholders, at least some of them, would like to get rid of today’s management; and have Verizon buy Vodafone, instead of any kind of partial deal.
