IT IS a potential deal that has been talked about for years, but has suddenly
become a real possibility. On Friday February 1st Microsoft, the world’s
biggest software company, made a $44.6 billion offer for Yahoo!, an ailing
internet giant. The proposed deal, which would transform the software and
internet-services industries, values Yahoo! at $31 a share, a 62% premium over
the closing price on Thursday.

Just between me you, and the intarweb, I think the real problem Microsoft has in
challenging Google is Microsofts own reputation.
