Still, he's right. Once you issue a search for something in Y!, it looks very similar to google.

15. Anyone remember the bubble of 2000??? Feb 10, 2008, 12:24 shul
 
What the hell is going on? is this handled by 8 year olds?? How is it no one remembers the *other* time companies you can replicate using PHP were sold for this much money ???

What is their barrier of entrance? knowing html? are you kidding me? MS is the only company in the world stupid enough to buy such a thing ("look ma! we bought another toy!!")..

This is somewhere in the middle of the end , not even the start of one.. the stock market is going down, everything is in red and you want to spend an amount which can reduce the subprime issue to nil on Yahoo! ????

Translation:

We know you can easily afford $52 billion, so come back when you want to offer that.

a few areas, like the finance section and yahoo groups.

Don't forget about Yahoo Answers. Google retired Google Answers, but Yahoo's is still going strong (albeit essentially worthless due to a serious lack of quality control)

Come this time next year, they will be fucking beggin MS to make the same offer.

MS will make an offer, below 44 billion. Yahoo is toast as Google is Intel as Yahoo is AMD.

What the hell does $44.6 billion get you these days anyway? Nothing, that's what.

$56.6 billion however. Now you're talking!

Fine by me... I've happily used Yahoo! mail since 1997 and have absolutely no desire for it to turn into Hotmail. Blegh.
