Microsoft buys Opera… OH-EM-GEE, haha!, J/K! ;)

Fake Blog News

Well, if you want to bust your credibility, here’s a hint. Gossip about the world’s largest software manufacturer eating up a smaller software company that another large (and growing) technology company recently passed onsupposedly.

And then rescind your report when it hits the top of Memeorandum:

Update: Opera recently confirmed that Microsoft has not approached the browser maker and there is no active acquistion deal between the two companies currently.

Is this how traditional marketing gets its revenge on the blogs? Or is it just a really bad week for citjay? Ah well, at least we still have parody.
