Rumour has it Tawain "Silicon Island" or the Philipines in a special "Internation Trade Zone", with special tax and other "regulatory" favorable rules. I guess with that much money, why not just "move" to Seeland and pay the King there to abdictate in your favor? I think our national interests would be harmed if they do in fact move to Tawain, or create multiple "micro"-Bills in Canada, Tawain, the Philipines, etc.

If those rumors are true, then it is curtains for MSFT. I suspect they will try to find a country which doesn't trade fairly with the US, but not one controlled by the US. Any other rumors?

Told Divorce among insiders for "Tax" benefits signals breakup in advance of any corporate "stiff upper lip" change in antitrust outcome on appeal. Of course, with this much money that probably would not matter, but middle tier management may provide such a signal. My guess is that the insiders will "know" before anyone else is "told".

There is a lot of SOFTWARE/MATH TALENT in INDIA. The 60% domestic ownership laws wre a problem, but they have new exceptions which will make India the lead software developer country next to the US very soon, if not now. Rather India than communist china is my view. ABC Anybody But "CommunistChina" (oneword intentional).
