Microsoft’s Bid for Yahoo

In case you haven’t heard, Microsoft has put in a bid to buy Yahoo. I admit when I read the news I was scratching my head in disbelief. What would be the point, I pondered. But technologist and fellow blogger Ross Kodner expressed my puzzlement better than my own words ever could in his post entitled “More Money Than Sense? If I Had $44.6 Billion, I Wouldn’t Be Buying Yahoo!” If you’re ready for a good laugh, read this post for sure.

In every merger one must find synergy of some sort — meaning that one plus one must equal three or more. Ross is right in his post — what possible synergy would this marriage produce? Aside from the inflation of the stock price of Yahoo, that is. If you don’t already own stock, you’re probably too late to cash in on this outlandish deal.
