Bringing the Xbox into the Nintendo/Sony owned market, and bringing the Zune into the Apple dominated market...regardless of how well they end up doing you gotta give Microsoft credit for having the balls to at least try.

-The iPod still has over 50% of the Mp3 player market

-The Xbox 1 succeeded in passing the Nintendo Gamecube in sales,but completely failed against the Playstation 2 in the same category.

-The Xbox 360,though launching a full Year earlier than it's competitors,has already been surpassed in sales by the Nintendo Wii,and is currently being outsold by the Playstation 3 in it's most dominant market.

Call me a fool,but Microsoft have A LOT of work to do before their ventures in the video game and Mp3 market can be universally considered as a success.

MS is the underdog in the Search arena.

I was reading about MS and Yahoo and they say, Yahoo still might come back to the table later on. Seeing how Google doubled their revenue last year.If revenues continue to Dip, it's only the matter of time.

But analyst are still not sure why MS really needs yahoo...It would make MS stronger but, I wouldn't seem them overtaking Google. Hey I only use Google. It works.

Google have the best search algorithm, simple as that and they're name has become synonymous with internet search engines.

Yahoo should biddy up with Google.
