Norway Moves Data Even FAST-er

Norwegians have come a long way since the early days of communicating by handwritten letters, painfully and slowly carried aboard emigrant ships to North America and elsewhere. Now, they're moving data for Microsoft.

Microsoft Corp. will use its $1.2 billion purchase of Oslo company Fast Search and Transfer ASA to form key, Norway-based research and development centers for its business search systems [...] Microsoft hopes its own Web search and advertising business, which lags far behind Google Inc.'s in terms of traffic and revenue, will grow from the acquisition of Fast.
