    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    They've been in bed for a long time, so it makes sense—apart from the price, I would never have thought $34Bn!

    MS paid $7.5Bn for Github recently, so maybe this is a somewhat desperation or defensive move by IBM to get back in the game currently dominated by Amazon, MS & Google.
