You gotta love Microsoft way of doing business. Buying out successful competitors and bringing them to their side to maximize their profits even more. I respect that though, nothing personal just business.

I bet if anyone's daddy worked at Microsoft, they wouldn't be complaining. I love companies like this. Business is business, not a popularity contest. I got my official certification from Microsoft, so that's my future. Sorry for the blog-ish post. :P

Think they'll integrate it into the new Zune?

that might be the plan but I hope not, Zune's reception has not been too good among consumers whiles Blackbery on the other side is a beast among consumers. But who knows really what they are planning.

Molson, Tim Hortons, Hudsons Bay Company (and on a lesser scale, Futureshop)

all bought out by Americans

wouldnt be surprised if this Canadian company gets bought out

Alcan, Stelco, the Quebec Nordiques, the Winnipeg Jets and, soon, Bell Networks.

I don't think Tim Hortons and Molson were actually bought out though - those were mergers. A bit different. Molson merged with Labatt (I think - or was it Coors) but, if I'm not mistaken, Molson was actually worth more at the time. Wendy's and Tim Hortons was a similar deal.
