And then it was over. On Dec. 31, 1999, the world held its breath and nothing happened. Jan. 1, 2000 came in just like any other day. There were no major failures to report anywhere.
2. Today after 10 years....I feel the time has just rolled like a ball....so quickly we are a decade ahead of that night....the night that was a wakeup call for every one who felt that there is no need of IT then....the night that showed how heavily we r banked on the IT......

4. Citing a clip from a CNBC broadcast shown below, during which Google chief executive Eric Schmidt discussed online privacy, During the interview, Google chief executive Eric Schmidt was asked: "People are treating Google like their most trusted friend...should they be?" It was Schmidt's answer that motivated Dotzler to show users how to drop Google, Firefox's default search engine, for rival Bing.
"IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT YOU DON'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW, MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T BE DOING IT IN THE FIRST PLACE," SCHMIDT TOLD CNBC. "IF YOU REALLY NEED THAT KIND OF PRIVACY, THE REALITY IS THAT SEARCH ENGINES, INCLUDING GOOGLE, DO RETAIN THIS INFORMATION FOR SOME TIME AND IT'S IMPORTANT, FOR EXAMPLE, THAT WE ARE ALL SUBJECT IN THE UNITED STATES TO THE PATRIOT ACT AND IT IS POSSIBLE THAT ALL THAT INFORMATION COULD BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE AUTHORITIES," ADDED SCHMIDT.
5. Asa Dotzler, Mozilla's director of community development, then on provided a link to the Firefox extension that adds Bing to Firefox's search engine list.
