    In an apparent surprise to Yahoo (YHOO), its top revenue generator, Joanne Bradford, is reportedly leaving the search giant to become chief revenue officer at Demand Media. Bradford was set to play a key role in Yahoo's partnership with Microsoft (MSFT).

    In the square-off between Google (GOOG) and China, the Chinese government almost certainly has the advantage. The local search engine Baidu (BIDU) has about 60% of the Chinese market, and Yahoo (YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT) say they have no intention of leaving China and will follow local laws. So China does not need Google, but Google does need China.

    Yahoo (YHOO -2.3%) is dubbed a "value trap," as it continues to lose market share in search, and online content and display ad sectors look increasingly fragmented. “Scale and momentum increasingly reside with Bing (MSFT).”

    Search market share reports from comScore and Hitwise show more of the same: Yahoo (YHOO) slipping, Microsoft (MSFT) gaining, Google (GOOG) leading with a commanding share. But with their deal in place, Microsoft gains little by taking Yahoo's share.

    Google (GOOG) unveils an app store for business applications as it pushes forward in its fight against Microsoft (MSFT), but the reason Google's +1% premarket is because of reports its CEO is in "active" talks with China.

    The "choice screen" Microsoft (MSFT) is now offering on its Windows-equipped PCs in Europe is giving rival browsers a boost. Mozilla's Firefox has gotten an extra 50,000 downloads, while Opera Software's browser has seen downloads triple in some countries.

    With the iPad (AAPL +3.9%) arriving in less than a month, another well-timed piece on Microsoft's (MSFT -0.1%) competing product - the hinged tablet they're calling Courier.

    Setting an April 3 debut for the iPad has helped push Apple (AAPL +3.7%) to its all-time high of $218.50. Heavy dollar volume in AAPL is lifting tech as a sector, with the notable exception of Microsoft (MSFT -0.4%) - whose iPhone catch-up "Project Pink" is rumored to be coming to Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD).

    Google (GOOG) faces an antitrust suit from a small internet firm represented by Microsoft's (MSFT) longstanding chief outside counsel. This latest move has Google saying MSFT is engaging in a proxy war through unrelated cases to set the stage for a broader antitrust assault. (previously I, II)

    Antitrust? Don't look at us, look at those guys over there! Microsoft (MSFT) goes public with direct requests for increased scrutiny of Google (GOOG) - a contrast to a more stealthy approach when its European property Ciao complained to EC regulators.
