Wired Magazine reported in 2007 that an editor using a Diebold IP address had removed negative information from the Diebold Wikipedia page, with the information later moved to a more appropriate location .  Diebold was increasingly focusing on technology related to mobile banking as of 2008,  incorporating mobile banking into many of its products. That year Diebold was selected to be the sole ATM provider at certain Beijing Olympics venues.  In March 2008, United Technologies Corporation (UTC), a large engineering and defense conglomerate, announced it had made a $ billion bid to buy Diebold, which was later rejected as too low.  In October 2008, UTC announced it was breaking off acquisition talks after Diebold rejected the offer.  The company had 17,000 workers worldwide by April 2009.  In 2009 Bank Technology News ranked Diebold as No. 1 on its FINTECH 100 list of ATM providers.
