    Yahoo is apparently a nice piece of a**.

    And everyone wants to break themselves off a piece. :D

    I'm gonna get flamed for that one. Please people, dont take it too serious. My sense of humors just warped. :p

    I'd say Yahoo is about 6 or 7. Nothing special. ;)


    That said, can the Aussies just take him back? PLEASE?!

    Well, I never said Ballmer and Murdoch had taste. ;)

    BTW, love your icon. Its Haruhi right? (Thats what it looks like to me)

    Either that, or they want to hire Jerry to get him to style their hair like his. :D

    What does News Corp. really add?

    While News Corp. would clearly supply some much needed capital and help with distribution, is that what Yahoo! really needs the most?

    Yahoo! seems years behind on its pay-per-click advertising system, relative to Google AdWords.

    Yahoo!'s biggest issues seems like a technology/innovation issue. Aside from some enormous cultural barriers and potential anti-trust issues, bringing together the #2 and #3 players in this space (Yahoo! and Microsoft) could make sense.

    However Yahoo!'s made it pretty clear that they're not interested.

    I hardly use Yahoo now, but if I have to face a myspace style visual and auditory nightmare I will NEVER use it again.

    But Yahoo is interested in money, so technically, they're always interested.
