What a week it has been eh? I was out of the loop on Monday, only to discover later in the night that Adobe had acquired Macromedia, and Gamestop had done the same to EB. Then later in the week, the Dow dropped dangerously close to the 10,000 mark, NYSE merges with Archipelago followed by Nasdaq's acquisition of Instinet. And the most interesting review? Dvorak's take on the Adobe/Macromedia deal.
