It seems to me that Microsoft is considering following Google’s style in generating revenue. What you ask? Why getting ads into everything you think of. Once again, I believe that they ought to just buyout an option versus trying to roll out one out themselves.
Microsoft Corp. has big ambitions in the digital advertising market — hoping to someday provide the infrastructure for companies to place ads inside everything from Internet-based television to mobile phones.
Those are some of the long-term possibilities that Microsoft envisions for its upcoming adCenter technology, as outlined by company officials at a conference in Las Vegas last week.
“We want to gather an unprecedented global audience,” said Jed Nahum, director of adCenter product management, during a session on the program at the company’s Mix 06 conference. He explained that the ultimate hope is to make an advertising system that works “across all sorts of properties.” Source: Seattle PI
