- The Wall Street Journal is reporting that talks are revolving around the possibility of AOL switching its search engine from Google to Microsoft.
- The New York Times points out that the talks were initiated by Microsoft which at one point had made overtures to both AOL and Yahoo! about selling its MSN service.
- The Washington Post raises the possibility that the two online networks might combine their advertising sales forces.
