Jon Fingas, Engadget:
Microsoft has acquired LinkedIn for $26.2 billion. The company plans to integrate the career-oriented social network into many of its apps and services, including Office, Skype and Cortana.
When you consider the businesses of these two companies from a bird eye’s view and consider this acquisition, it’s as if a bulb goes off in your head. I joked on Twitter, ‘which would you say is a better perfect match: Beats-Apple or LinkedIn-Microsoft?’.
