    Just another step toward Bill Gates and his global domination. (not to mention cornering the internet market)

    Hey, like they say, if you can't beat 'em, BUY 'EM! Lawd, the last thing I need is for MS to incorporate it's horrible MSN mail into Yahoo... The only good thing about their service is the msn.com domain name. The mail part sucks! GMAIL 4 life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thats a nice premium. Yahoos shares were trading at 19$ before the announcement.
    Even with both engines combined they will remain distant from google's search share.

    Re: Microsoft bids $45 billion to buy Yahoo!

    The merger would be detrimental to Yahoo email users, (especially the free service) MS free emails dont like to setup on BB, and if MS buy out yahoo, there goes ability of setting up free yahoo on BB, and millions of tech support calls to the carriers, sounds like fun to me.....NOT.
