Microsoft Pulls Out

Yay for sexual innuendo!
To be a little more serious, Microsoft has finally given up on the Yahoo! deal. Of course, this isn’t a total loss, especially for Microsoft. You see, the next time stock plunges at Y! there will be a bigger step to have a MS+Y! deal and the next time, it actually might go through.

This was an epic win for everybody, and I would like to congratulate all who participated. Hit up the Partyvan IRC and join #3/15 for the next protest details… and join my channel too!

Go, Anon, GO!!

I support all those who fight in the name of Anonymous, great job Australia keep up the good work Europe and Asia!!

Expect big from the USA!
