Via Washington Post:
Microsoft will make a $300 million investment in the subsidiary for an approximately 17.6 percent stake. Barnes & Noble will own about 82.4 percent of the subsidiary, which has yet to be named. The companies say the subsidiary will help to speed the transition to e-reading. Barnes & Noble sells the Nook e-reader. The Nook app will make Barnes & Nobleâ€™s catalog of e-books, magazines and newspapers available to Windows customers.
Guess the Microsoft – Barnes & Noble lawsuitsÂ are history?
