Yahoo and Microsoft set to tie the knot

Funny… earlier this week I was wondering about the future of Yahoo’s ad network: would this once dominant network slowly sink into the ground or would it somehow turn around and revive itself? Looks like we have the answer in the form of Microsoft’s $44.6 billion offer to buy Yahoo! While that’s a huge premium over the stock price (62%), I’m betting Microsoft knows what it’s doing here. Yahoo’s ad network has good bones, and just needs some vision on where to take it. While some of the changes Yahoo made to its ad network looked promising, as mentioned here, it would’ve been nice if they’d tried to leapfrog Google instead of just imitating them. And Microsoft seems to have some interesting ideas on the future of online advertising, but they lacked the network that Yahoo would now give them. A Microsoft/Yahoo deal looks like it’ll fill important voids in both camps. Maybe, just maybe, this will inject some new life into Yahoo’s ad network – I don’t normally root for Microsoft, but this Yahoo deal and other changes at Microsoft are a positive sign. They might just be taking Hugh Macleod’s Blue Monster campaign seriously.

Reading the proposal letter from Microsoft, they make it clear that they’re setting up for a war with someone… a certain company… one who may have bought some spectrum at 4.7B… a company that may have missed its earnings in Q4… I’m really not sure.

But Microsoft refers to them over and over again… i.e.) “market is increasingly dominated by one player”

Who could this ‘one player’ be?

Who is this “one player”?… very mysterious indeed ;-)

It’s AOL – it has to be.

I hope Yahoo says NO. They need to stay on the path they were on…2008 was looking so promising.
