Why haven't Microsoft bought out new.net? We all know how they can't resist monopolies. They've got most of the world using their browsers, so if they bought new.net with their weekly pocket money, they could New.net-enable their subsequent browser models and have a monopoly on most generic tlds, which would become popular due to the massive browser audience. So why haven't they bought new.net?
