Not a bad deal, if it proves to be sustainable.

Go to Seattle. Look at the mountain range. One of those mountains is Mt. Microsoft: a vast pile of money.

Microsoft can easily spend billions to destroy Google.

And this may well be true. But how long should a society tolerate a business entity whose primary purpose of investment activity is ... destruction of other businesses?

I don't know, why don't you ask Google that. They are bent on destroying every business model they can get their hands on.

I would have thought advertising for business an market share was the done thing

Do we all have to examine our web ethics every time we display ads supplied by some well known companies :)
