Microsoft Has Smaller Fish To Fry.

After making a failed bid in excess of forty billion dollars for yahoo, Microsoft has now set its sights on another search engine. Microsoft seems very serious about challenging Google's perceived dominance of the search engine market and its latest target is a search engine company called power set which is based in silicon Valley. The deal is rumored to be in the range of a hundred million dollars plus. Microsoft last bid for yahoo was considered by many as being hostile. Maybe people would consider this as being unduly generous. Personally I cannot figure out why Microsoft would want to acquire a company that was largely unknown until now but we can be certain that our beloved software giant has an hidden agenda in the works.
