The Microsoft-Yahoo news

Not a lot of people outside IT seem to be aware of the news about Microsoft’s proposed take-over of Yahoo, but to those I have spoken to reckon it obvious that the plan is to stop Google.

A BBC report on it has the graph below that shows how the two companies share price is dropping

In another article, the BBC describes it as a shotgun marriage – referring to any hasty marriage which is arranged less out of the desire of the participants to marry, but rather to avoid embarrassment.


One thought on “The Microsoft-Yahoo news

  1. Indeed only shareholders have something to win from Micro$oft-Yahoo! merge.

    This is really a bad news for the web & for Yahoo! employees (many of them will be “sacrified” in the name of
    “eliminating redundant infrastructure and duplicative operating costs”)
