Microsoft in Talks to acquire Yahoo

According to the NYPost Microsoft has reopened talks to merge or acquire Yahoo! The estimated value of the transaction, if it went down, would be $50 Billion.

This merger/acquisition would put them at 27% of the internet search market with Google at 65%. Not to mention the amount of eyeballs they have combined.

NYPost says that if this happened the online advertising that Yahoo and Microsoft control would only be behind Google 13%.

This is a really big deal and I think it would be interesting if it happened, it would make Microsoft/Yahoo! the most dominant force on the internet.
