What's surprising is that Yahoo! hasn't been bought out yet. I know Microsoft and Yahoo! are sort of playing games with each other and what not and eventually it probably will lead to a buyout IMHO. I don't know if even Microsoft could have them though.

People are just going to Google now, Google is just kind of the "in" thing. For good reason of course; it's not cluttered, the news is better organized, you can create an "iGoogle" page now, everything is nicely laid out and is simple and easy to use. Not to mention the search is better.

Surprising or not?

Not in the least. Yang wouldn't let Microsoft buy them for 3x what they're worth now. He really is the Chief Yahoo.

Yeah, I was a Yahoo user from way back. I loved their news and mail, until they improved them so much that they're useless. Now I've got an iGoogle page set up with everything just the way I want it. And I'm writing my own Google gadgets, which is fun.

Gee, I didn't hear this 3 years ago from SISO. :p

Unfortunately, Yahoo (my favorite service) has been going downhill fast.
