A couple of days ago, heard on the radio (Forbes on Radio, actually) about the epic battle that is soon to take place between Google and Microsoft. Oooooh, it just makes me happy all over. I'm not even entirely sure why, except that I like competition, big corporations, and battles of wits, which this is definitely going to be. Much as I like Microsoft, I am glad that somebody is going to be beating them into shape. That is what capitalism is all about.
And even more so since all the people in Silicon Valley are whining about how this is going to inflate salaries and how google lures away the best people and everything. Such awesmosity. May the best man win.
