    Will Dell provide insight on Goog deal?

    What insight? Dell *pays* MSFT to use MSFT software. Google will pay billions TO Dell for an otherwise similar deal.

    Raw lesson for the Googlers to have to learn this late in the game: MAKE SURE THE MONEY FLOWS IN NOT OUT!

    • Google does not need Dell for access to their current main busuness, which you get to simply by typing in on any internet application such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Norvell NetSearch. There must be something more to the Google/Dell $1B deal such as some new Google application that may be competition for Microsoft Windows or Internet Explorer. I don't think Google would give $1B to Dell without some return on the investment. I think Google has a reported $8B cash balance and they are looking for ways to invest for future earnings/income growth.
