So MSFT is looking to buy an ISP to complement it's MSNetwork. Could it be conceivable that MSFT attempts to buy ATHM??

Look at what they would get - great technology, immediate access to the fat pipe, immediate access to customers that buy things (lots of things!), great partners with the likes of the cable cos., and a head start vs AOL's broadband ISP efforts.

Seems to me that MSFT would get one step closer to dominating the internet and controlling how people connect and interact with it.

Just thinking out of the box here.

Am I way of base??
