I are not worried.

by Dr Dij In reply to Microsoft are buying Yaho ...

I are thinking that Google saying it will restrict competition is sour grapes.

I are also believe that unless they do away with the marvelous directory feature, which goo-goo doesn't have I would still prefer them.

I are think that their email is superior (ok, I have not are using google email) becuz of paid version having disposable email addresses, which are eliminate spam.

That are all I have to say.

Competition is good

by JHHernandez In reply to Microsoft are buying Yaho ...

For one thing Google has taken notice and may have to react. Having said that, I think their lead in the search marketing area is so huge that they're not exactly worried. Aware and concerned maybe, worried and panicked, no way. If this goes through and Google doesn't submit its own offer for Yahoo, we'll end up with less players in the arena. That's a fact. Is this good or bad ? Can't say. What I do know is that there hasn't been any serious competition for Google for awhile. Wall street has been especially hard on MSFT and YHOO for this. Now that may change...or not.
