AP Flies Microsoft Freak Flag in Online Battle

The CEO of the Associated Press -- a company that, you may know, HATES THE INTERNET -- was speaking to journalists in Hong Kong when he let slip that his company was only talking to Microsoft, not Google, as it prepares to change the way it syndicates content online. The AP was blown-away by a Microsoft demo and will be enjoying the priveilege of having their content get the top ranks on the Redmond giants search engine. Google? Not even in the conversation.

What's this mean for both? That AP, the company that hated spammers so much it became one, is setting sail with Microsoft to do battle against the Good Ship Google. (Currently sitting at 124-0 in high-seas sinkings.) As Valleywag asks, what could possibly go wrong?
