Welcome to IWETHEY!

New And THEY complained about...
Google buying Double Click? Claiming Sherman act violations.

I have to laugh. How much did Google spend to buy "dieing" Double Click?

Yahoo! isn't really in a dieing phase at all.

Speculations are US$50B for the price. Sure Microsoft can afford it, but nothing like trying to become bigger by acquisition, thereby heavy possibly of coming up on Sherman Act Violations.

Sheesh, nothing like Bitching about others Anti-Trust workings, but please ignore anything THEY DO!

New Yahoo seems to be in trouble
I say this based on system uptime/quality. The email accounts are unusable - often slow to the point of hanging altogether, sometimes down, not nearly reliable enough.

Based on this I begin to conclude that there are serious operational problems at Yahoo and they are not being addressed. My wife finally bailed on her yahoo account just this month after watching it get worse and worse over the last year.



We posture as apostles of fair play, as good sportsmen, as professional knights-errant-- and we throw beer bottles at the umpire when he refuses to cheat for our side...We save the black-and-tan republics from their native [statesmen]--and flood them with "deserving" democrats of our own. We deafen the world with our whoops for liberty--and submit to laws that destroy our most sacred rights...We play policeman and Sunday-school superintendent to half of Christendom--and lynch a darky every two days in our own backyard.

New Wasn't the point of my post.
The real point is, that Microsoft Filed FTC filings on the "Google buyout of Double Click" as being a Sherman Act violation.

The hypocrisy of them trying to buy Yahoo! is far more of a "Sherman act violation", than the Google Double click thing.

And when I meant in a dieing phase... I meant it is obvious Double Click was WAY past its prime and not able to keep up.

Yahoo! is just having a Mid-Life crisis right now, just like Hotmail has since Microsoft bought it. Remember when they(MS) first tried to change out the BSD architecture and replace it with Windows based? What a "boondoggle"... ha!

I still hear rumors that Hotmail runs on a BSD for some critical functions, though these are just scuttle, I'd suppose.
