Microsoft/Yahoo/AOL/News Corp/BORING!

The internets have been ablaze with rumors and news about Yahoo's imminent acquisition. Microsoft offered to buy Yahoo for billions. Yahoo then hinted that it liked News Corp, AOL, or maybe even Google! The real story is that we don't know what's going on in those boardrooms and I personally don't care.

Big fish/Little fish picMicrosoft is pretty terrible with internet stuff (Live Search, Internet Explorer anyone?) and Yahoo is really losing steam as a web property. While they do have tons of loyal users with their email, news, and even their search, they pale in comparison to Google's free web services and powerful integrated ads (oh and they do search too). Yahoo has forgotten how to be innovative and combining it with Microsoft's lame web presence doesn't seem to be much news at all to me.

I don't want to say much about this until something actually happens, but if you have thoughts, leave comments...I read them, I promise!

Also, another post is coming up soon...about my electronic mistress! [/scandal]
