Microsoft interested in taking over Google

Posted on Friday, Oct 31 2003 @ 23:58 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft has approached Google during the last two months to discuss partnership options, according to an article in the New York Times. But luckily Google has more than enough money and trust in itself to refuse Microsoft his offers :
The talks failed to get off the ground, with Google opting instead to press ahead with plans to float on the stock market, the newspaper reported.

A Microsoft spokesperson declined to comment, saying the company would not confirm or deny "rumours."

Any attempt by Microsoft to forge an alliance with Google is likely to be interpreted as a sign that it regards the search engine as a growing competitive threat.
