Google May Help Yahoo… To Thwart Microsoft

February 3, 2008

Well… really brief post, but I hope something comes of it. Supposedly Google CEO Eric Schmidt has called Jerry Yang, offering some help to thwart Microsoft’s unfriendly bid for Yahoo!. They also published a worthy read on the Google blog entitled “Yahoo! and the future of the Internet“.

This story will definitely get more interesting in the days to come, that’s for sure. Although I initially mused that Google partnering with Yahoo! would definitely benefit Yahoo! more than Google, it may prove that just thwarting Microsoft would be enough reason for Google to do something here.

    Yes, please stop Microsoft! Microsoft will never beat Google, they’re always behind the trends and never set trends!!

    Meanwhile, Ballmer & Co. continue to press forward: http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5g9cE_gI-aemyNxZQb7YOBC3rsNlQD8UJIQSO0

    I can’t help but laugh at the Star Wars analogy this evokes for me. Yahoo caught in the middle, not knowing which side to choose. “Join us and together we will rule the galaxy/interwebs!”. “Don’t listen to them Yahoo!, they’re a sith lord!” Choices, choices…

    …but then again, if things turn truly hostile, maybe there will be no choice.
