so would microsoft try to merge hotmail and yahoo mail? msn messenger and yahoo messenger? or compete with itself? either way it loses money in development. in the years it would take to move forward in the merger, google could gain a stronger hold.

Personally I think Dennis K. Berman is on the right track in this piece from the Wall Street Journal...

Still, in a world where users not companies are continually innovating and upending the business world, creating an ever-larger bureaucracy does not seem like a guarantee of anything.

For Yahoo shareholders, the message is clear: Take the money and run. The message is also clear for Microsoft shareholders: The onus remains on Redmond to sell, sell, sell its case.

This has the feel of AOL/Time Warner 2.0 until proven otherwise.
