O.P. MS + Yahoo vs. Google
Microsoft are trying to take over Yahoo! for something like $44bn i think (correction? =p) to try and rival Google's share in search engine and advertising marketshare "before Google get a foothold in", but if im not mistaken, around 75% of all searches were performed using Google in the U.K alone, so isnt it a bit late? :P


what's going to happen i wonder?

Microsoft just doesn't have it in its blood to compete in the market of Internet applications and services. Their success was in the PC software market, and their strategy has usually been to corner the market before consumers get a choice, because most users are too complacent to download new software to replace what comes pre-installed on their computer. Even then, IE ultimately fell out of favour, after users became frustrated with yeras of security issues, which is only a testament to how slow they are to respond to the demands of Internet users. Google doesn't rest on their laurels. They challenge their programmers to always be working on something new. I'll believe Microsoft can step up to the plate and play this game when I see it."

Yahoo is also the most popular site in the world at the moment (Alexa), and yahoo owns other popular sites such as flickr. I would rather have yahoo purchased by google though so they would finally dominate the interwebz.

google just owns, docs, earth, maps, mail, and even its own IM, and all for free.
thats the best part...free. :P and i like how they dont JUST go for all these fancy graphics, its just functional and about as simple as it needs to be. and then there's microsoft, of which you cant use POP3 for free with hotmail :P yes i know im being biased XD

Personally i think its a wise move, but it will be very interesting to see what comes of the Yahoo Applications and the currently testing Yahoo Messenger *-)

Google > Yahoo+MS on the internet :-)
As far as desktops go, Google still have a strong policy against entering into OS' but they are planning for their own phone :o
Its Google and MS. Has been for a long time now and I don't expect it to change :)

On the Internet, irrespective of who buys who.. Google will still lead MS :)
