Was out with the boys last night. There are sales managers and two of them had some very juicy tidbits on mspg. First tidbit is mspg and Stupid PC have already inked a deal where mindspring will offer a free pc from Stupic PC for a 3 year contract with mindspring as your isp. It may also have a merger or buyout as part of the deal.
Second big tidbit is Microsoft wants Mindspring to take over MSN in exchange for a share of Mindspring or a buyout. I can't confirm either rumor obviously but one of the guys has a brother who does a lot of business with Mindspring and says the Stupid PC deal is already complete and the MSN deal is still be negotiated.
Don't bank on either one though as you know how rumors go.
