Supper Hyper Global Meganet?[edit]

Just for an LOL, i thought about the Simpson's episode where Microsoft's goons 'byout' Homers home business.

I know it wont be listed, but at least its now talked about :). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Amckern (talkcontribs) 14:17, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Discrepancies[edit]

The article states that Microsoft acquired Great Plains Software on April, 2001, but according to Microsoft's own investor relations web site (http://www.microsoft.com/msft/acquisitions/history.mspx) it was on December 21, 2000. Who is right? I would change the article, but even Microsoft is wrong sometimes(though they will never admit it).

Yahoo is also listed however, this is an announced take-over it has not been approved or officiated so why is it listed? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.4.192.183 (talk) 01:11, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

Derived product/technology missing[edit]

Just a month back when I checked, this article contained a "derived products" column. It probably was removed because it was incomplete. But it was good to have that info anyway. I feel it should be put back rather than eliminating it merely to "increase the article quality". Meanwhile, I'm trying to complete it and provide references. Any opinions? - xpclient Talk 13:27, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

AdECN is an Ad Exchange not a Security firm[edit]

It's wrong in the listing. How does one edit the list? I was afraid that I'd mess up a data pull from Thompson? Ipsofacto123 (talk) 14:26, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Dead links in article[edit]

The majority of deadlinks tagged recently are from Thompson Financial via the Alacra Store website. As these articles are no longer available, it might be a good idea to start looking for alternate articles for WP:V --Breno talk 12:02, 22 August 2012 (UTC)
