Microsoft to buy Facebook

Microsoft facebook

Quote:
If rumors are to be believed, which they sometimes should be (Google DID buy YouTube, after all), then Microsoft is about to spend $6 billion on the acquisition of Facebook. From a business standpoint, buying one of the largest social networking sites in America would bring Microsoft ahead in the game of internet business. This makes sense, especially considering the last profitable thing Microsoft did involving the internet was the acquisition of Hotmail.

Facebook, Myspace, Bebo. All a load of *****e just so teens and young adults can draw attention to themselves and look as if they are the greatest people in the world. I don't really care if Microsoft buy it to be honest.

Dear government, please limit Microsoft to a certain number of products.

I mean come on, Microsoft is buying EVERYTHING, its trying to become a monopoly, and there needs to be something done. They overcharge almost all the software they have, and its ridicious.

Sorry if I offended you. It's just that I've gotten used to people posting articles that aren't really news or posting news in a very unprofessional looking manner. I got the news section started on OCN so I have always tried to keep it at higher standards.
