YIKES!!!!

IMHO this paragraph represent the real goal/purpose of the aleged MS acquasition:

"Rather, Microsoft is probably looking to purchase other assets, including advertising, personalization and behavior-tracking technology, in order to catch up with competitors like Yahoo Inc. and Google Inc., two rivals that utilize contextual technology to draw in advertisers. "

In my view if and when the deal closes MS will take the negative baggage (Spyware) that the deal includes and divest themselves of that part and or structure the deal so they don't touch that stuff..

Sure, MS will still take TONS of flack for dealing with GATOR (LOL) but as a stockholder it makes perfect sence to me. I'm laughing all the way to the bank (LOL) along with Bill and the other Steve.

tada
