Some interesting acquisition news starts our week, with both items reported by VentureBeat. First, Microsoft acquires and shutters messaging startup Wand Labs. Next, Samsung buys Joyent, a cloud infrastructure company. Joyent will continue to operate as a separate company, so no major concerns there. On Digital Trends, they talk about a man who built a 100mpg engine using the concepts of a Stirling engine and newer hybrid technology. It is very cool stuff.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
