6 companies Microsoft should buy

Microsoft isn't short of cash, and it recently - and unsuccessfully - offered to buy Yahoo for $44.6 billion.

The idea was to catch up with Google, but the big G isn't the only firm doing well in areas where Microsoft isn't. So perhaps Microsoft should widen its net.

From video and music to shopping and social networks, TechRadar thinks these six firms should be on Microsoft's shopping list.

What for? So people can scream, "Monopoly!"... They should just form partnerships which in many cases have the same results.

You banned to this hell hole too?

No i think these companies are better off being independent. M$ reminds me of Hitler. Take advantage over anyone to become the supreme ruler.

"jesus what are gamers on about these days. Comparing a Company to the tyrant known as Hitler jesus christ that is pathetic."

I think its a response to what they're doing to their first party.

Unbelievable the stupidity here in N4G!!!

with the people who have a problem with the Hitler/Microsoft comparison. In theory I understand the point....but comparing a company to an individual who was trying to eliminate a cultural...I am sure that can be insensitive to the right people.

KarIostomy3584d ago

yeah ... so you got that wrong.

Last I heard, Hitler was at Sony and working on the ps3.
In fact, I snapped a picture of Hitler holding his beloved Ps3.

Bill Gates is probably hiding in his bunker now!

cryymoar3584d ago

i personally agree with the comparison. Microsoft are trying to kill off any competition just so they have the monopoly. Microsoft doesn't give two sh1ts about improving technology, otherwise they'd leave Apple and Sony alone.

Oh yes, thats why Ensembles Studios has been closed down.
Thats why Rare is being restructured.
Thats why Bungie is no longer with MS.

Oh yes, you know even if MS files bankruptcy, these damn fking fanboys still think MS owns the world.

Calling Hitler a tyrant is a compliment. Tyrants are rulers who (while taking control through force) are reformers with the general support of the people. Hitler IS a tyrant, but the word is mainly used in a positive conitation.

Fanboys would have a complete mental breakdown due to having to worship and despise something at the same time.

well if they did buy Facebook, i would be one of the first to close my account, i cant stand all the changes they make to there services which then inevitably break (i used to use hotmail, then they changed it to Live mail and i left coz its teribble).

They should buy shares in something that is failing anyway, hopefully it would take them down with it :)

Mr Tretton3584d ago

MS shouldn't buy anything. Why and the hell would you want them controlling more sh*t?
