In the News It is no secret that Microsoft is doing whatever it can to eat away at Google's immense market share of the search market, with Bing being its most ambitious effort yet. Well, it seems the battle just got a whole lot dirtier, as The Financial Times has uncovered news that Microsoft has approached several news content providers, offering them money if they "de-index" their sites from Google.

Here is what bugs me about Microsoft

Here is what bugs me about Microsoft. They were ruled to be unfairly using their monopoly of the OS market to their advantage. Yet, we dont ever say anything about them using their profits obtained from said monopoly to buy their way into other markets. How many companies have the cash to buy their way into the gaming market, or the search market. Seems like they should not be allowed to use the profits from their illegal actions in the past to buy market share.
