Let's See Microsoft Innovate Its Way Out of This

Kevin Maney writes:

''From way over in Indonesia, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates let it be known that Microsoft never needed to buy Yahoo to make headway in search and advertising. It just kind of wanted to.

"We have always felt we could do very well on our own and now that's the path we are focused on," Gates told AP in Jakarta on Friday. "The standard strategy for us is to just hire great engineers and surprise people at how well we can compete, even with a company that's got a strong lead."

Yes it always tickles me when a company says no, but the stockholders say yes. Just makes me giggle is all.

That is worthless traffic troll. Complete emotion and hate-filled attack for traffic.

It didnt even make sense.

They have this "we're on top, no matter our failures", and have little internet minions helping out their "cause". I personally don't care what happens to their marketshare for all their products. I have never purchased with my own hard earned money, any Microsoft product. And I likely never will. :)
