I left at the same time this morning as I did yesterday – except yesterday I got here 15 minutes late, and today I got here 15 minutes early.

So, EMI and Time Warner don’t get to merge, since the European competition authorities didn’t approve. I’m not too happy with the idea of amalgamated record companies, stinks too much of AOL and Microsoft for my tastes… besides, the concept of AOL owning more artists just makes me shudder. This could easily just be a delay though… to get around it, I’m sure Time Warner could just buy Europe… and then it’d be AOL Time Europe Warner.
