Microsoft has offered $50 billion for Yahoo! as it failed to match Google’s success and also as a means to counter Google-DoubleClick deal. I just feel that Microsoft is frustrated because it failed to become the numero uno of the internet. Has Microsoft finally realised that it cannot make it big on its own ? is it because Yahoo and Microsoft have fallen behind Google in the race to capture online advertising dollars.
I am sure the Anti Trust lobby will have a word or two regarding this deal, if it goes through.
What is your take on the whole episode ?
