Microsoft Acquisition of Yahoo!
« on: February 04, 2008, 07:23 AM »
I read this line over my friends paul's blog.I was surprised by Yahoo!'s decision for offer of MS.I know many of the yahoo products are cool to be integrated into MS.But it doesn't make any sense.

MS got bad hit from Linux,but they are really getting their grooves with web services and is most used technology on the internet.But acquiring Yahoo! will definitely make them to conquer more internet as yahoo's BSD servers will be replaced by MS servers.Simplenet & Flickr will also get integrated with MS technology,no More PHP & MYSQL on Yahoo! office.

Again Yahoo was not taking most data from user for their purpose (some exceptions) but like Google, MS (as usual)will start taking personal data from user.And security breaks down..... and down...

Take a look at this article http://paulstamatiou...46-billion-for-yahoo

& search on for more detalis.

Drop me some of your thoughts.
