This is unimportnat IMO and a giant waste of money. If GOOG paid $1 billion (25% of their cash or so, nothing to MSFT), they are mental. AOL is losing craploads of customers every second, pretty soon they'll be down to 0 customers. Good play on MSFT's part by bumping up the deal into high figured and then not taking.
