Redmond, WA - In a move that surprised industry analysts, today Microsoft declared that it was acquiring Cemetech for $20 billion. This announcement comes mere days after the first indications that Microsoft was interested in Cemetech. "We feel this company shows a great deal of potential and has incredible amounts of talent in a variety of technological fields," said Bill Gates, the Chief Software Engineer of Microsoft. At a meeting at Cemetech's headquarters in Cemetech City, the two agreed to the terms of the deal and mutually agreed they looked forward to working together. "This is a momentuous occasion and I am happy to be a part of it," said Kerm Martian, the President and Founder of Cemetech. (AP)

This is a JOKE people. Don't start suing me. :P
Looks like somebody thought they could monopolize the calculator industry as well, with the purchase of their counter part operating system...Doors Laughing So I guess the next version of Doors will be out soon, seeing as how there will no longer be any debugging Laughing Good fake news Very Happy
FINALLY! now Kerm can buy a speedy new webhost Rolling Eyes Laughing
Does this mean I get a payraise, and that Kerm can hire someone to fix the online users bug?
