    Dang, Microsoft is really getting desperate those days.

    Keep it up, Google! You might very well be the leading cause of the downfall of Microsoft.

    Microsoft loses about 6bn every year in expenses they label as "other".

    Some of this is admin, a lot of it appears to be settlements and fines for anti competitive practice (i.e. breaking the law).

    Microsoft has no track record of succeeding with anything apart from Windows, Office and Keyboards and Mice (financial wise).

    I doubt this will do anything to aid there online presence let alone get anywhere near to competing with Google and Yahoo.
