War between Microsoft and Google heats up

Microsoft (MSFT) wants into Google's search business. Google (GOOG) wants a part of Microsoft's business in the desktop applications sector. Those pieces of information are both old news, but perhaps the growing violence of the battles is not.

The Wall Street Journal reports that "Microsoft said Google's new Apps Sync software disables the search capabilities of Microsoft's popular Outlook email program." There is apparently some truth to the allegation.
