Verizon buying Yahoo

    Do you think Verizon buying Yahoo will have some affect on Yahoo Fortune.

    Will it be able to beat Google?

    What do you think?

    Not much maybe a little effect but still it wont be near to Google.
    I dont like their email service these days since it seems too slow compared to Gmail.

    I agree they were buying lots of companies, they thought this would work for Yahoo in the long run but sadly that didn't happen. Now Verizon has a big portfolio of products to integrate :).

    Of course one has to bare in mind Verizons goals. If they just wanted to take over Google in search and email then that is going to be a huge gamble, one that probably won't pay off. Instead, I think they are going the more 'AOL Route', use its advertising technologies and audience to build a great network of sites. Not necessarily building the largest and best search engine or email app.

    I don't think so, I've just heard a massive data breach attack on Yahoo recently!

    Ya, well, myspace was vastly different. News corp had no idea what to do with myspace, so they basically wasted all their money and investments. Google knows what they're doing and there's a reason why yahoo nor bing can directly compete against them.

    The search engine might get revamped.

    I think it will not have any effect at all.

    Marissa Mayer ruined Yahoo, now with this Verizon deal they're likely dropping towards some niche market. Or dropping out of competition with Google altogether.

    Yahoo used to be a search engine - 4 years ahead of Google - and is now what? A convenient web search on a news portal for desperate housewives? I expect them to become less and less of a search engine and more a set of nice features for Verizon broadband customers.
