    Microsoft Merge with AOL


    The New York Post, citing people familiar with the situation, said Time Warner executives have held talks in recent months with Microsoft about a potential sale of AOL.

    I'm not sure the Government would allow this to happen. Imagine, AOL is already one of the most powerfull companys out there. With full control of the Media(CNN,Time), Microsoft would be in a position to control the world almost. They already run MSNBC, I fear the day we must all work for Mircosoft.



    EDIT: Posted in wrong group....sry bout that

    considering the fact that aol has been given the ok by the courts to buy a large share of google stock this could have more of an impact than it first seems

    I very much doubt it will happen, these look more like speculative rumours than real evidence of a potential sale/merger/takeover (depending how you want to look at it).

    Wow

    If AOL and Microsoft merge that would be one of the strongest computer companies on earth. It might be a good thing though, maybe Microsoft can increase security for AOL so hackers, spammers and viruses can not mess with it so easy.

    With the greatest respect, sir, leopards are not noted for changing their spots? otherwise they would be "Ligers"...............well you know what Sir Bill thinks about Lindows.......

    I rest my case.

    It seems to me that there is some stock manipulation in the offing........../me sends anonymous Hotmail to the SEC /end

    I can't really see Billy wanting AOL.................it seems to be in trouble this side of the Pond anyways..............can't even advertise these days?.............And I was just getting used to using those nice shiny coasters as crow scarers (that is serious BTW, old CDs work just fine....OK so we don't have a gardening and farming forum )

    I guess the bottom line is that MS is already in anti-trust/monopoly difficulty? I cannot see it happening, unless MS wish to destroy AOL?

    Just my thoughts
