Article: Reuters: Microsoft Buys 800+ Patents from Aol for $1 Billion
I'm not paying much attention to this, so forgive me if I'm being stupid, but wouldn't it have been cheaper for Microsoft just to buy AOL? I wouldn't think AOL would be worth $1B these days.
I don't know but this I'm sure: if anyone bought AOL they'll automatically inherit all the problems AOL has. It's better to by the pieces that are worth something.
