Submission + - NY Times: Microsoft Tried to Unload Bing on Facebook (

benfrog writes: "According to a blog posting on the New York Times site, Microsoft tried to sell the perpetual money-losing Bing to Facebook "over a year ago" (the article cites "several people with knowledge of the discussions who didn’t want to be identified talking about internal deliberations"). Steve Ballmer, apparently, was not involved or consulted. Facebook politely declined. Neither Microsoft or Facebook would comment on the rumors."
