GOOG: $147B

Google is a _very_ big company, more than half the size of MSFT.

Portals are dying, most people use Search directly, or social aggregators like this (digg, reddit, N4G, furl and so many others).

YHOO is making a _big_ mistake by not going to MSFT - and its stockholders are going to be pissed, and loose a lot of money in the process.

AOL+YHOO is not going to be able to keep up with MSFT and GOOG in the R&D and Innovation.
