All the talk this week has been about Yahoo and Microsoft, of course. But while it might have stoked the fires of mouthy hacks and analysts alike, Sneak really can't see what the big deal is. Gates v Google, Ballmer vs Yang, who really cares? Could it potentially alter cyberspace as we know it? Meh.
A slightly better search engine and a more hip, internety Microsoft, or Yacrosoft, or Micrahoo, is all that is likely to result if the hostile bid succeeds. Oh, and the end of Yahoo Mail and Messenger. Oh, and the redefinition of the search engine marketing industry. Alright, alright; on second thoughts it might be worth casually following the story. But surely the most epoch-making moment in this deal could be the day Microsoft announces it is to place an exclamation mark at the end of its logo. Yes, this would surely be a defining moment in the history of 21st century technology.
