It was bound to happen sooner or later and they claim they will remain competitive in other areas.  But Google has seriously wounded the beast and it's climbing on every head to remain dominant: http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/43961?source=NWWNLE_nlt_daily_pm_2009-07-29

In reality this is little more than  Jackoff IMO, but Microsoft owning key aspects of Yahoo is newsworthy nonetheless.

Yeah man, this is a weird, if only slightly unexpected event. There's a slight fragrance of death-throes about it though. Ever so faint, but definitely in the air.

Great article RC.

Yes, great article rcjordan.  I felt like this months ago when I first discovered Yahoo had given up and was just determining price with MS.  I just hoped Yahoo didn't sink any lower before getting gobbled up by Mordor.  I agree with one comment about how Google got the best of this deal, not Yahoo or Microsoft.

gees, what a negative f'ing doomsday take that article has.

Yahoo outsourced their search for ten years; it was just a mirror of Google,
probably no Yahoo users even were aware of that, tried it themselves for a
few years, now are outsourcing again.  Big deal.

 Ditto

hence my initial  Jackoff

But here's my personal shout-out to unfettered, survival of the snakiest capitalism:  Vomit
