Good job. A few comments.

  • A pic would be nice, perhaps a US map with dots at the HQ's for both companies ?
  • I don't like the VoIP abbrev., as many people won't know it, but concede that writing it out in the title would be way too long.
  • Seven sources seems excessive, did you really use all 7 when writing the story ? StuRat 19:34, 1 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the comments, The VoIP abbreviation is not the best, but I think anyone who cares will know what it means. I did use all seven sources, because many of them just repeat the same set of facts with a few extras. It is these few extra facts that require so many to be used. For example “Warning bell rings for telecom firms” was the only source that had any information about a Microsoft/Teleo product being expected later in the year. The sources I used the most was the Pakistan Tribune and the Teleo website. If you read many of my stories you will find that I do use a lot of sources to write them, because I believe that there is no such thing as too many sources. :) --Cspurrier 12:02, 2 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RE: "MSN Messenger is by far the most popular instant messaging program, Yahoo!'s instant messenger is the second most popular as of July." Reference? Depending on your definition of what it means to be a user, this may not be true.

From the Pakistan Tribune "Yahoo!'s instant messenger had 78.8 million users in July, compared with 189.7 million for MSN Messenger and 64.4 million for Time Warner Inc.'s AOL Instant Messenger." --Cspurrier 12:01, 2 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
