Microsoft + Yahoo = Microhoo(?) Yahoosoft(?)

I don't usually blog about these type of items, but this one sounds quite interesting. It has been rumored about for some time. Now it seems to be coming true.

Microsoft has just offered to buy Yahoo! for $44.6 billion. Read Steve Balmer's letter to the Yahoo! board here.

I personally don't see much good coming out of this. Especially since I'm heavily using Yahoo services such as Yahoo Mail and Flickr. I don't think I want Microsoft to be messing with these services.

Oh well, who knows? This might just turn out to be good for us. We'll have to wait and see.
