Staunch move by Xobni to walk away from Microsoft’s takeover offer. Apparently they felt uncomfortable with Microsoft’s intentions for them. I wonder if Bill Gates will continue to use the Xobni plugin?

Xobni sees itself as much more than just a simple outlook plugin – they’re working on a YahooMail product and one assumes Gmail comes next. Perhaps now WorkLight and Xobni will see the synergies between them and do some sort of merger deal??? A kind of enterprise 2.0, email/social networking uber offering?
