Google outbids Microsoft for Dell bundling deal, sez WSJ – Engadget

And after Yahoo and eBay made a deal to work together (Paypal and Skype will be all over Yahoo, and Yahoo ads all over eBay), Google today announces a deal with HP, outbiddig Microsoft for a LOT of money: Google will be the default homepage on all Dell computers for the next three years, and they’ll come with Google Desktop installed too. Take that M$.

Still, an expensive buy (supposedly a billion dollars?) to get something that Microsoft pretty much still owns by default: the browser and the desktop.
