Microsoft Purchases Evil

BBSpot has a funny article titled “Microsoft Purchases Evil From Satan”, explaining how Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates negotiated a takeover of evil from Satan. Microsoft made the purchase because it was not satisfied with the slow buildup of market share in evil over its three decades, and with the purchase it becomes the clear market leader.

Analysts suggest it was increasing pressure from Google that threatened Microsoft’s status as an evil innovator, and spurred the bold move. Or, as Robert Scoble would put it, “I’ve been telling my friends that two kids from Stanford stole our evil and we want it back, damn it!”

“Evil is a real growing market,” market strategist Frank Dresgan of Merrill Lynch explained. “Microsoft is a little late in the game, but even when they enter a market late they still tend to dominate. I think we’ll see the same results with evil.”

The purchase digs deep into the capital fund designed to combat Google, putting $2.7 billion in the pockets of the dark lord. No, not Bill Gates, the other dark lord!
