Bloomberg has an insider, “familiar” with the goings-on at AOL, tell them that the company may switch their search results from Google to MSN.
If true, this would be certainly allow Microsoft the chance to finally edge up their market share, while at the same time reducing Google’s.
“Google and AOL have a healthy global partnership and AOL remains a valued partner,” Google spokesman Michael Mayzel said.
That reminds me of a college AD issuing a statement that their 0-11 football coach, has their complete support. Usually it’s an empty statement.
I think a Microsoft/AOL partnership has a high likelihood of happening, especially as Microsoft is rumored to be considering taking a stake in AOL.
