Microsoft and Google: Partners or Rivals?

Microsoft and Google: Partners or Rivals? "According to company executives and others briefed on the discussions, Microsoft - desperate to capture a slice of the popular and ad-generating search business - approached Google within the last two months to discuss options, including the possibility of a takeover.
