    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.
