Microsoft Plus Yahoo!

No synergy on the backend. A lot of Yahoo! engineers will find themselves wanting a new job. The eyeballs and the combined IP, if they can make it work, will be worth the price tag.

I’ve been an avid My Yahoo user for well over 10 years. I’ll never switch, and I certainly wouldn’t complain about a Microsoft logo up there on the top somewhere. (Just so long as the page continues to render as fast as it does today.) I would also LOVE more integration with the apps I use on my desktop.

This could work really well, or it could fail in a really big way. Time will tell.
