Yahoo + Microsoft? I Like it.

I'm sure you've seen the news of Microsoft's $45 billion bid for Yahoo. I think it's a good idea for both companies and the only way Google can be challenged. Yahoo needs Microsoft's cash and Microsoft needs Yahoo's internet presence and search business. Microsoft Live, Hotmail, and MSN are viable divisions of Microsoft but have no chance of competing with Google or even Yahoo.

The boys at Google have it going for them. How long they can continue their search dominance I don't know, but their entrance into online docs, hosting, books, maps, etc. show a nimble, intelligent, and aggressive company that we all wish we had invested in just a few years ago.
