    Goggle taking over Yahoo ?

    I hope not. I don't use Google at all if I can help it due to their
    policies regarding firearms and also keeping a log of every
    search one does using them and Yahoo isn't much
    better, but I've used it since 02. I'll have to find a different
    setup if this happens..

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O) and Google Inc (GOOG.O) will make a joint announcement on Thursday afternoon, the technology blog TechCrunch reported, citing an unidentified source close to one of the companies.

    TechCrunch said the announcement is likely to be a search partnership between the two companies that outsources all or part of Yahoo search marketing, and possibly search itself, to Google.
    Wait and see I guess..

    Nothing really new there. Been going on for years. They outsource portions of their web searching operations (bots/crawlers.... etc) to Inktomi, among others, to an increasing extent. Its growing... just a sign of the times. All of it aimed at..... one guess..... grabbing as much of YOUR paycheck as possible.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O) and arch rival Google Inc (GOOG.O) said on Thursday they had entered a non-exclusive partnership on search advertising expected to add as much as $800 million in annual revenue.

    Under the agreement, Yahoo can run ads supplied by Google alongside its own search results and on some of its websites in the United States and Canada. Yahoo will decide where the Google ads will run and which search terms it can use, Yahoo said in a statement.

    same thing ? Some guy named Uncle Sam and the Hoffa folks DID say I was good
    for pennies on the dollar though.

    Google was crying about a monopoly with MS taking over Yahoo and they don't seem to be unhappy if Google/Yahoo having a partnership.

    I have never supported Google. Still won't. I do use yahoo for searches though. But we'll see where this goes.
