Microsoft Flirts with AOL
Another short RCPU today, as duty calls at the mothership. It doesn't really
matter, though, because we're in a news trough. About all there is to talk about
is Microsoft flailing around looking to buy a Web company like a nerdy guy trying
to find a dance partner at a junior high cotillion.
Now that Microsoft has backed
off of Yahoo, Redmond is whispering
in AOL's ear. Yes, that's right -- AOL. Please try to contain your laughter.
This is a professional environment, mostly.
It's surely all a bid to make
Yahoo jealous, though -- and it
might be working. Whatever. We figure that Microsoft and Yahoo will end
up together at some point, just as the nerdy guy and the pretty girl usually
do in the movies. Of course, those movies never show what happens next, and
that could be the ugly part for Microsoft and Yahoo if they do hook up.
