Microsoft Makes Offer to Yahoo

Interesting. I wonder if they really will join forces and if they will really be able to compete against Google?

Yahoo has some cool features, but besides for their nice AJAX mail client I don't use it for anything else. Well Fantasy Football in the fall, but that's it.

Google on the other hand - I use their email, love the Google maps, and use it all the time to search. I occasionally use some of their other offerings as well. Will Yahoo and M$ really be able to compete? Although Yahoo could definitely help M$ - who hasn't successfully created web apps the way Yahoo has.

Steve Ballmer says of the deal "Emerging user experiences: Our combined ability to focus engineering resources that drive innovation in emerging scenarios such as video, mobile services, online commerce, social media, and social platforms is greatly enhanced."
