    Futures get a boost from Microsoft's (MSFT) blowout quarter, suggesting strength going into the open. It's been a bumpy ride this week: Monday stocks climbed, Tuesday they retreated, Wednesday they climbed, then plunged in the final hour, while yesterday buyers took firm control. Benchmark S&P +0.4% to 1095. Nasdaq +0.9%.

    In a surprise move, Microsoft (MSFT +0.3%) begins selling PCs and third-party software through its remade online store. Not clear how happy resellers will be with this move.

    Microsoft (MSFT) confirms deals that will include real-time Twitter and Facebook feeds on its Bing search engine - a first, in featuring data that Google (GOOG) doesn't have. The deal probably means several million dollars plus revenue sharing for the smaller services, which prompts Ryan Chittum to ask, if you can pay Twitter for tweets, why not pay the press for news?
