Danny has a detailed write up on the rumors spreading from Wall Stree Journal article and also at CNN.

Microsoft has been in talks with Yahoo! about potentially acquiring a major portion of the company, according to a report published Wednesday. Members of the company's top management are considering a deal despite Microsoft's history of winning over major technology markets - think Web browsers - on its own, The Wall Street Journal said.

What if? Could it be? What is Google thinking? No way! Or maybe?

That is crazy and will affect SEO as they will probably be based on the same info for rankings. Our <a href="http://www.sweetfountains.com">fountain chocolate</a> website currently is #1 on MSN for our search term "chocolate fountain", but is only 8 on yahoo. Will be interesting if that happens to see if they will go together or stay seperate.
