    Default Micro-Hoo is here

    After spending a really long time (MIX 08, I remember) MSFT and Yahoo have finally reached a deal. Not a full buy out as SteveB wanted a year back, but as speculated Search business is what was on the plate.

    A 10 year deal has been reached. You can read about the deal:

    Choice. Value. Innovation. - Home

    Yahoo's press release -- Yahoo! Inc. - Press Release

    Yahoo's search will be powered by Bing, MSFT gets access to Yahoo's search tech.

    After over a year and a half of off-again on-again speculation, Microsoft and Yahoo sealed the deal.... Google is alone now in the war of Internet.

    surely a powerful competitor for google will take shape. but one thing i like to mention here, which one of friend told me, when we were discussing this news, he is google fan alike i am of MS, but what he told, i liked it and somewhat its true....

    he said, "many search engine will develop in future and may beat google but searching is not there business, searching is there heart, they do it by heart."

    like search, recursion in google. then click on did you mean, there. It will show you what the recursion is in real.....
