    Why it is sure that Microsoft will make another bid!

    Kind of like what google was trying to do, but not very well!

    The copy and paste functions of google docs suxx.

    • Microsoft Office is dying!

    • I liked mid day breezes and miss the old copy and paste stuff. Storm in the gulf Chinese shutting in well production due to flooding and we probably get our first oil price increase that takes the market higher with an energy trade tropical storm bonnie. The dems chose an odd time to bring up the energy bill and an even odder time to deal with questions over renewables but there is so much to deal with on the economic front that it does make sense to focus. Microsoft does need a jolt of some kind and Oracle just lined up a 70 billion dollar buy out fund which does raise an eyebrow since they already have an open office product from the sun purchase as well as a major database/cloud initiative. Seems like the old titans still have something left to prove. Oracle has its own chips, own server line a database and storage arm with an open source application division with java. Often its not the bull you see that you have to worry about but rather the one you dont see coming.
