Well, Mr. Microsoft was rejected by Ms. Yahoo, how sad……It could have been a marriage of convenience for different reasons. Microsoft fell asleep behind the wheel while developing Windows software and finds itself now playing catch-up with companies successfully reaping the profits of web advertising. Yahoo has tried a little bit of everything to compete against Google. I think that Mr. Microsoft is too calculating and systematic for Ms.Yahoo who has major mood swings. Ms. Yahoo is very social, trying to flirt with everyone while Mr. Microsoft is more of a nerd who likes to stay at his computer.
The two of them could mesh their software resources and come up with new services, for example in the emerging market for video and mobile. It would be a challenge to mesh their corporate cultures. Can you imagine a nerd with a hoola hoop? What will future bring?
