Microsoft Tried to Buy Google?

MIcrosoft courting Google : Yikes.

“Microsoft Corp., seeking a foothold in the Internet search business, approached Google within the last two months to discuss a partnership or even a merger, according to a published report Friday. […]

The report, quoting company executives and others briefed on the discussions, said Google indicated it was more interested in pursuing an initial public offering.”
