Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) recently announced that it was acquiring online ad company aQuantive (NASDAQ:AQNT) in the largest deal in Microsoft's history. Is it a good deal for Microsoft or a Google-induced (NASDAQ:GOOG) act of desperation? What will the deal mean for competitors? What will it mean for Microsoft shareholders? I put these questions to Motley Fool analyst Tim Beyers.
