The deal that everyone except the board of Yahoo! wanted to see should take place in the next six months now that Jerry Yang has agreed to step aside at Yahoo. I wonder if Microsoft will make an immediate move or wait a little to see if the down economy knocks even more money off the Yahoo stock price?
MS Yahoo is a match made in necessity. It appears Microsoft is finally turning a corner in its product development and release cycle; and have finally started developing some nice only products. Combine this with the reach of Yahoo and maybe, just maybe, it’ll work out okay for the combined team.
Who knows, maybe under Microsoft control the folks at Yahoo will figure out they actually do have competition.
