    This is old news. Microsoft was eager to buy Yahoo!, but Yahoo! rejected the offer.

    Yeah I briefly remember reading something about this. It was somewhat of a reaction back then to Google's increasing monopoly.

    I think it will be a LONG time before anyone ovrtakes Google. They currently have something like 80% of the total internet searches!
    And while it works as well as it does - it will continue to do well.

    No Matter how many companies microsoft buys I am not sure if its going to help it get rich. Microsoft can only do windows and thats it.
