MSU SAYS MICROSOFT WEBTV BUY WILL BOOST COMPETITION

By CBR Staff Writer

Despite earlier refusal to comment (CI No 3,165) on Microsoft Corp’s acquisition of WebTV Network Inc, Milton Keynes, UK-based specialist chip design company MSU Corp, has said it will propel the market forward. The company behind Slipstream, a product similar to a cable television box originally refused to comment about the $425 deal but said it shared the same goal with WebTV. John Watts, MSU’s technical manager in the UK said of the competition that will be generated: You really don’t get a market unless there’s a number of companies in it. He went on to say the market would pick up because, otherwise Microsoft wouldn’t have forked out the millions it did.
