Yesterday brought us the strange news that Microsoft had acquired some weird Sony-related domains. Could this mean the console partnership of the century? The first broadside in a cynical advertising campaign? A precursor to alien invasion?!
Nope. As we said at the time, it's just a defensive measure to stop other parties acquiring and misusing the sites for themselves. Here's the latest from Microsoft's Frank X. Shaw.
re: sony/ms domain names: Sony = great MS partner. No scoop here, this was just a defensive domain hold. Let’s move on to weekend, kay? :)
Sounds good to us. Case closed - so let's get back to our Saturday.
