    Bill is too busy away from Microsoft these days... just walking the Earth (well flying around in his private jet) with Melinda, finding adventures, like Caine from Kung Fu ;-)

    Bill's been quietly doing a lot of good stuff - helping poorer countries with clean water supplies, preventing disease, fighting gender inequality, aiding education - in short providing worthwhile causes with more than 23,000 sizable grants across the entire planet.

    For all the wrongs in Microsoft's past, Bill really has made a positive difference to millions of lives over the past decade. His best work without a doubt... still haven't forgiven him for early days of "The Browser Wars" though! Internet Explorer was the spawn of a sloppy devil.

    No it's probably far less CT-crazy. They probably just want to be able to stealth data gather from all online consultations to sell your info to health insurance companies and remove patient-doctor confidentiality, so that the insurance companies can find new and inventive ways to hike your premiums and refuse to payout.

    Reminds me, I need to find a local piercing studio that'll stick an RFID chip in me.

    Or a vet.

    10 billion of this acquisition have already been dumped on the American tax payer.

    @mods @devs @Hexus, should this (or similar company) takeover ever look likely please add a "purge all user posts and information" button to user account admin so we can all nuke our details and post history simply, easily and irrevocably.

    Makes me wonder why even have Antitrust laws if they aren't even going to use it against companies that are monopolies. Crony capitalism at its nadir.
