/// A Valuable Tool for Web Browsing
[ See post to watch video ] When activist investor Carl Icahn gave up his quest to block a buyout of computer maker Dell this week, he compared the attitude of the company’s board with 1930s movie idol Clark Gable’s most famous line: “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” What if you were reading this news online and didn’t know who Clark Gable was? You could look him up in a source like Wikipedia, but that would mean leaving the page where the Icahn story was, and possibly never returning to learn more about the story. If you had a new Web browser add-on called Curiyo, you could simply click on his name and learn about Mr. Gable from Wikipedia or other sources in a pop-up box—never leaving the page or the story. Curiyo underlined Clark Gable’s name in a story about Carl Icahn.
