Out of all the things to spend your money on...
According to a rumor tweeted by TechEye, Microsoft could be looking to expand their social online business by buing up Linden Labs, the folks that developed the online bizarro world we know as Second Life. Here's what the tweet said:
A little birdie told me that Microsoft may have silently offered to buy Linden Lab this week
Man, if this was off base I'd be looking to go all Duck Hunt on that little birdie.
It seems that Linden has been entertaining offers, and if the rumors are right, Microsoft stepped up. I don't know why they'd want to do that. Look at PlayStation Home. That's a lot like Second Life, but I don't think that anyone would call it a success.
