Hi. GOOG will indeed be Master of the Universe if the ON2 acquisition is approved. ON2's clients include not only ADBE, JAVA, and a host of other behemoths poised to take advantage of the coming video revolution, but also the Chinese who want no part of h.264, the 'other' codec which is the product of a consortium of companies, and is getting long in the tooth. ONT shareholders believe that GOOG has bullied itself into a position in which ON2 management had no choice but to accept this abismal offer. Fact is, GOOG underestimated the passion and knowledge of ON2 shareholders, many of whom have been with the company since the beginning. We won't be bullied. Book it. GOOG's motto, 'do no evil', is being tested with the facts behind this acquisition. J
