    U.S., EU approve Microsoft-Yahoo deal - U.S. business- msnbc.com

    I hope they don't dump the Yahoo! brand altogether. I'd hit Yahoo before I'd hit Bing.

    i'm hearing that alot, but that doesn't really matter. what matters is two giants merging together as direct competition to Google. if MS got their act straight and mimicked Google's cloud integration with their mobile products, there might be some concern for action.

    i personally cant stand yahoo. what used to be a nice search engine has become bogged down with news and adverts and social-network tie-ins and such. when i need to search, i use google and google only.

    (well technically i use firefox's google search window up in the upper right corner of my screen)

    Just a tiny article but it could indeed mean big things later. Or not.

    Microsoft thought they had an answer for Google with Bing. Bing is even an app in Blackberry that is pushed by Verizon. To the best of my knowledge Bing hasn't made too much of an impact.
