Re: [Y-Mail] Microsoft Won't Take No For Anaswer To Take Over Yahoo!
- As said previously, it depends on what they do with Yahoo properties. If they leave the branding and the applications (e.g. flickr, delicious, Y Mail) seperate, then no reason to leave. For example, You Tube is not massively different since Google purchased it. In fact you'd hardly know it's a google company. The one thing there isn't is a rush. If anything happens it will take many months (meanwhile google races on ahead...). My feeling is that Microsoft will just shut down the non-profit making arms of yahoo and carry on supporting the rest. There's just way too many Y mail and hotmail users to suddenly merge them all into one, for example. The real merger will come in the advertising side of things, which might just be more efficient.
- I suppose if you consider the possible effect this deal would have on Yahoo Mail, then yes, it's relevant.... otherwise, it's fairly off-topic.
