Replying to Microsoft To Buy Yahoo!
Posted 12 February 2008 - 10:02 AM
Yahoo really has nothing that is not already present in Microsoft's offerings.
So just reducing the number of competitors won't make Microsoft any more money in the long term.
So I say go ahead and knock yourselves out, Microsoft.

"Should I negotiate a higher bid from Microsoft?"
"Should I play a Google defense?"

Yahoo, ofcourse hasnt looked any better since the day i abandoned it for gmail, but even so, it commands a following - and a loyal one at that. Though it may have lost some of its core business to MySpace messenger, and though its interface and features pale in comparison to its nearest competitors, Yahoo is THE yahoo. It was my first email address, and most of us have that kinda nostalgia about yahoo.
The point here is, Microsoft only has Google's rapid expansion to counter. All this time, Ive been hoping that yahoo! would rise to the challenge in the interests of Better Business and if Yahoo gives in and gives up now, it would be a crying shame to say the least. Microsoft buying Yahoo is bad news, because most of all its an identity issue, its like Coke buying Pepsi or McDonalds buying Burger King. Hotmail and Yahoo have competed fiercely, and not all of us have Amnesia. Brand identity goes for a toss in this takeover. Imagine your dad getting a sex-change lol and coming home to you "Son, you have two mothers."
Well even if noone else feels this passsionately about the issue , I do think you guys get my point. Yahoo will barely survive this takeover as a brand, while MS can feed its bloated ego.
