The week of July 27, 2008, started off with an opinion piece by NY Times columnist Thomas Friedman about T. Boone Pickens and Shai Agassi leading the energy revolution. Meanwhile, rivals in Agassi’s former field, IBM and Microsoft are moving forward with integrating their recent Israeli acquisitions and Adobe is now seeking its own Israeli technology. Of course, politically, the big news was that Israeli PM, Ehud Olmert, will be resigning in September. How this will impact peace in the region and Israel’s economy, if at all, is yet to be seen. These weren’t the only big headlines from the past week though. The full 16 Israel-related technology headlines from the week of July 27, 2008 are right below.
