microsoft to buy yahoo!

can you believe it! microsoft has offered $44 BILLION for yahoo!

obviously this is designed to put microsoft more in line with google’s technology and strategy.

in a very interesting article in the nytimes, joe nocera, states that this shows that microsoft is “tired”.

…it serves as a confirmation that Microsoft’s glory days are in the past.

wow! keep an eye on this. i believe it will be an interesting partnership that will create a huge powerhouse OR microsoft’s hold will drive yahoo further down. time will tell…

thoughts, please share.

UPDATES:
So in an interesting twist, Google has offered help to Yahoo! to fend off the bid by microsoft… interesting i have to say. there is a comment that this is what microsoft needs to do since NOTHING they have done in the realm of the internet has made Yahoo! or Google blink…
