It appears that Facebook is not the only social network shopping for startups these days.
LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network in the Internet, has jumped on the bandwagon with its acquisition of content sharing community Slideshare for a $119 million cash and stock deal.
What does this mean for professionals and entrepreneurs like you and me? Well, have a look at the presentation LinkedIn and SlideShare prepared to celebrate this exciting news.
Personally, I’m excited about this development. LinkedIn is already an invaluable networking and marketing tool for small businesses. Add SlideShare’s content sharing technology and the possibilities are promising.
Of course, both companies have no concrete plans yet, so we’ll have to stay tuned until they announce how SlideShare will actually be integrated into LinkedIn.
But for now, you can read LinkedIn’s Press Release about the announcement.
Exciting times ahead for these two great companies.
As a tribute to the biggest Bentley engine, the famous 6.75 litre version powering the luxurious Mulsanne limousines, the Bentley 6.75 chronograph from Breitling ramps up the power and the audacity in an entirely black-clad limited series.
This midnight-hued livery, achieved by a special ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment, enhances the sporting style of the satin-brushed steel case with its taut, dynamic lines and its knurled bezel inspired by Bentley’s famous radiator grilles.
The dial also exudes dark elegance, enhanced by a vertical open-worked motif offering a glimpse of the movement.
The caseback springs its own surprise, since the five-spoke motif reprising the distinctive design of Bentley wheel rims also appears in black against the metallic background. The selfwinding chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), is distinguished by its original “large aperture calendar” system displaying the date in a highly readable manner via two distinct indicators: one for the tens and the other for the units.
Issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, the Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon comes on a rubber strap with a central raised motif echoing that of the bezel. Sheer class, clad in black and signed Breitling for Bentley.
