Can Microsoft rescue Barnes & Noble now, like it did Apple in 1997?
Back in 1997, Microsoft invested $150 million in Apple when its back was against the wall. Now, Microsoft has announced it will invest twice that amount in Barnes & Noble to make a Windows 8 version of its Nook e-book reader. Before analyzing Microsoft's latest investment, it's worth remembering why it took a piece of Apple 15 years ago.
