frandroid: Data banging an Enterprise computer screen which just showed the BSOD. (BSOD)
from this article, about a rumour Microsoft could buy RIM (the maker of the BlackBerry, for the uninitiated):
The takeover rumours helped spark a rise in the Canadian dollar, currency traders said. The loonie was quoted at 93.90 cents at 9:30 a.m. ET, but jumped three-quarters of a cent to 94.65 cents US by 2 p.m. ET.


Isn't that crazy? Is our economy so weak that a purchase rumour (a silly one at that*) on a large company can impact our currency?

*: and please don't make it true. MS would wreck RIM.
