Yahoo may consider Google alliance, source says

Yahoo's website is reporting on their own merger.

Yahoo Inc would consider a business alliance with Google Inc as one way to rebuff a $44.6 billion takeover proposal by Microsoft, a source familiar with Yahoo's strategy said on Sunday.

Yahoo management is considering revisiting talks it held with Google several months ago on an alliance as an alternative to Microsoft's bid, which, at $31 a share, Yahoo management believes undervalues the company, the source said. (PC, Tech)

It's like high school. Guy thinks girl should go out with him, so girl spites guy by going out with ANOTHER guy. One the first guy tends to hate.

Not quite.
The people that certain folks choose to date doesn't have ripple effects throughout the school though...this, however it turns it, certainly will.

So lets say whichever one girl picks gets her pregnant. How's that for ripple effects.

Wouldn't be such a bad thing, after all Google offering an initial gig of space (now over 6gb) for Gmail forced everyone to ante up. See what competition does? Their ads are also unobtrusive and quite often relevant, I sometimes find stuff I didn't know I was looking for by glancing at them.

I'm behind Google 100%, MS is on a power trip and just wants to be king in everything in this world. That's what drives them. And it's evil.

Google started and gave everyone 1GB FREE email and FREE access to POP & SMTP. Everyone followed the leader but still charge you $ to access your email via an email client. Gmail? FREE.

Google then goes on to give us internet based office applications FREE to use as we please. Then there's FeedBurner that they recently aquired and they are giving everyone the Pro upgrade FREE.

The day MS does that is the day this world ends.

I hope Google crushes MS to rubbles

i understand what it would do for Google to acquire Yahoo... it's monopolistic, BUT, it's worse in MS's hands. MS is an evil company on a power trip that just want in on everything they can put their greedy little hands in.

Read my comment on the Open section, i'm too lazy to type it out again.

Google FTW
Google FTW, I like google products most of them are free and they are %100 reliable, and I don’t mid their ads they are small and don’t take anything from your bandwidth.

So once again Google FTW

you guys are silly.......
Yahoo and Microsoft needs to team up..........if Google teamed up with Yahoo they would be a monopoly, just as bad as Microsoft was with windows for a while or as sony was with video games...

Its not anything but business, there isn't enough room u get it yet? yeah, yahoo and microsoft need to team up: GOOGLE has way too much of the market already, over 50%, and that means a strategic alliance has to happen or else the internet is not playing on a level. they HAVE to have this sort of merger, its for the best of both parties to not allow google to have everything.

lets be honest, this is a no-brainer and this article sums up everything totally....

Hotmail is free as well and I think its like 2GB free when you join up. I'm really not sure how someone can have up to 6GB's of emails though.

Google is worth alot, they use ads and for some programs you do have to pay for certain stuff. Anyways, Google is crying wolf because MS might challenge them, same way that MS is doing to Sony, MS wants more money so they can stay at the top and earn profit.

In the end this can mean better stuff for the consumers which is good.
