What is Windows Certificate or Digital Certificates?

According to Microsoft, certificates are used primarily to verify the identity of a person or device, authenticate a service, or encrypt files. Normally, you won't have to think about certificates at all. You might, however, see a message telling you that a certificate is expired or not valid. In those cases, you should follow the instructions in the message

Japan's giant online retail store,Rakuten Inc announced last Friday to purchase messaging app provider Viber Media Ltd for $900 million by the control of Hiroshi Mikitani, the company chairman.

Viber will provide a distribution channel for Rakuten’s digital products, Mikitani said at a briefing in Tokyo on Friday. Rakuten also hopes to create a game platform on closely held Viber, which has 300 million users of its instant messaging and free Internet phone services.

The acquisition is being financed through bank borrowing and is expected to close in March, Mikitani said. Rakuten had cash and near-cash items worth ¥345 billion as of Sept. 30, almost quadruple the amount at the end of 2011, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

According to Reuters, Rakuten said the purchase of Viber Media, run from Cyprus by Israeli entrepreneur Talmon Marco, will add 300 million users to its existing 200 million users.

In 2012, Rakuten spent $315 million to purchase Canada’s eReader business Kobo and also acquired, a Spanish streaming and video on-demand business.

Earlier in September last year, the Japanese e commerce giant also bought over Singapore base TV site Viki for $200 million dollars, in a move to deliver more value to its users.
