BusinessWeek has an update on AOL’s decision on who to have provide their search results; Google or MSN?
Both suitors still appeared to be in the running as of Dec. 11. But given the talks’ complexity, it’s not surprising that they’re dragging. It’s unclear at this point whether Time Warner will reach a deal with one or the other by the end of the month, as originally expected.
BW explains that AOL has a lot to gain from selecting the right partner, while both Google and Microsoft have a lot at stake too.
