    Indeed. I really wonder if it will happen someday when people begin to call Google evil and throw at all the hatred they're throwing at Microsoft nowadays. I know for sure there are Google fanboys everywhere already.

    How could Yahoo! become interested if Microsoft does not offer them more than their market value?

    We've been talking about this over at my site here.

    From me:

    Microsoft has offered to buy the popular search engine company Yahoo for 44.6bn in cash and shares.

    This is a move to designed to create a more credible competitor to industry leader Google Inc. (GOOG) and deepen Microsoft's position in the market for online business software.

    There is to be a conference call to discuss the proposal at 8:30 a.m. EST. The company is to present a strategic update for analysts Monday in New York.
    I think it's a waste of time, I just cannot see Yahoo getting to where they want to be.

    I think Microsoft should part with Google lol.

    Regards Jason

    Unless they change YUI license which is an open source license, nothing should change. I wonder what will happen to flickr though.

    YUI is open source, so it should remain unaffected.

    MS took the stock market (and practically the world's market) to soaring heights.
