That way, as the pages that are referenced are changed or taken from the web, a link to the version that was live when the page was written will be preserved.

Then the Internet Archive hopes that references to these archived pages will be put in place of a link that would be otherwise be broken, or a companion link to allow people to see what was originally intended by a page's authors.

The goal is to fix all broken links on the web. Crawls of supported "No More 404" sites. Collection: Wikipedia Near Real Time (from IRC) This is a collection of web page captures from links added to, or changed on, Wikipedia pages. The idea is to bring a reliability to Wikipedia outlinks so that if the pages referenced by Wikipedia articles are changed, or go away, a reader can permanently find what was originally referred to.

This is part of the Internet Archive's attempt to rid the web of broken links. TIMESTAMPS

Philips Electronics cuts another 2,200 jobs

Philips Electronics has said it will shed another 2,200 jobs as it looks to cut additional costs from the business.

The Dutch group had already announced an 800m-euro ($1bn; £640m) cost-cutting programme, which has now been increased to 1.1bn euros.

The cuts are being made in light of tough economic conditions and high pension costs, the company said.

Last year, Philips cut thousands of jobs as new chief executive Frans van Houten looked to overhaul the business.

The company made a loss of £1.3bn euros last year, but has recorded two consecutive quarters of profit since.

"The company has identified additional opportunities, among others in the healthcare and lighting sectors, to further decrease inefficiency and complexity," Philips said in a statement.

It added that the cuts would be completed by 2014.

Philips said business had slowed noticeably in both China and Europe.

"The identified additional overhead cost reduction measures will help us mitigate the effects of macro-economic headwinds and changes in pension-cost accounting," said Mr van Houten.

Philips currently employs about 116,000 people.
