Is Microsoft About to Blow a Billion Dollars?

The following video is from Friday's Motley Fool Money roundtable discussion, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser, James Early, and Matt Koppenheffer discuss the top business and investing stories of the week.

Shares of Barnes & Noble (NYSE: BKN  ) shot up on Thursday on reports that Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) has offered $1 billion to buy Nook Media. Microsoft would get the Nook tablets, e-readers, e-books, and college book division. Is it a good deal for Barnes & Noble? Is it a good deal for Microsoft? In this installment of Motley Fool Money, our analysts discuss the potential deal.

It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade. However, with the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, the company is looking to make a splash in this booming market. In a new premium report on Microsoft, a Motley Fool analyst explains that while the opportunity is huge, so are the challenges.
