How Much Does MS Dig Digg?

TechCrunch, a blog which everyone says is cool but isn't actually read by anyone I know, is reporting that Google and Microsoft may be fighting over Digg.com. Apparently, Google is willing to pay up to $225 million, while Microsoft, saving its big bucks for Yahoo, is coming in a bit lower.

I gotta tell you, Digg these days is far cooler than Yahoo. People who don't need to show an ID to get a senior citizen discount use Yahoo, while the Red Bull and pimple cream set flocks to Digg. Which do you think has more of a future?
