Microsoft joins complaint against Google

Google has been trying for several months now to acquire a software company called ITA, which makes a product that searches airline information for pricing, availability, everything you would need to book flights. It's a prelude to Google launching a big robust travel site, leveraging their own search power PLUS ITA's.

Now Microsoft has joined that chorus of complaints to the Justice Department.
