    Somebody is pouring a lot of money into Yahoo... Now just who could that be.
    If it doesn't work, you will be able to stick a fork into Yahoo and their funding source, and find that they are done.

    They remind me a bit of CompuServe - seemingly unassailable, and then they're scrambling to catch up and regain what they lost. AOL did for CompuServe and now it seems Google has done for Yahoo. A liaison with Microsoft might offer some hope in this space for both companies, or it might be too little too late. Google seems unassailable. (Where have I heard that before?)
