Industry Moves: Microsoft Online Chief Baylay Joins BBC After Highfield’s

,----[ Quote ]
| There’s an irony in this latest turn of the revolving door between the two 
| organisations - Baylay had been with Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) when former 
| BBC/Kangaroo online chief Ashley Highfield was in November announced as MD 
| and VP of Microsoft’s online and consumer business; her division merged with 
| another. It also follows the earlier appointments of Erik Huggers and Jon 
| Billings to the BBC’s future media team from Microsoft in 2007.     


So the Beeb employees people from a political movement that bullies, bribes,
sabotages, blackmails, and so on?


Crimes Microsoft Gets Away With - So Far

,----[ Quote ]
| News publications are cautious about making accusations, and because of that,
| some nasty acts of Microsoft are essentially being erased from the record.
| [...]
| Microsoft convinced Baystar Capital to put $50 Million dollars into SCO's
| lawsuit against IBM and other Open Source users, and promised to "backstop"
| Baystar's investment if SCO lost money, according to this sworn testimony.
| But I'm told that one person's testimony, even sworn testimony, isn't proof.


EU accuses Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| The European Commission has accused Microsoft of harming competition by
| bundling its Explorer web browser with its Windows operating system.
| The commission said it had reached the preliminary view that the US software
| giant had undermined consumer choice and infringed EU rules.
| Microsoft and the European Union have engaged in legal battles over
| competition issues for years.
| Last year, the EU fined Microsoft 899m euros ($1.4bn; £680.9m).
