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.
