MicroHoo!? Wow…This is Big!

February 1st, 2008

Man…so much you could say about this transaction if it goes down.  This has long been the speculation, but Yahoo in the past has scoffed at the idea. At this point however, and given the recent news out of Sunnyvale, I would be surprised if this deal didn’t happen.

Let’s look at some of the assets MS would be acquiring:

  1. The Yahoo brand (arguably the strongest online brand ever)
  2. The #1 trafficked news site
  3. Top social site Yahoo Answers
  4. Top photo site Flickr
  5. #1 web mail product
  6. Yahoo Music
  7. del.icio.us
  8. Yahoo Shopping / Stores
  9. Hotjobs
  10. A legitimate search engine and PPC network

Whew…

I’ll try to post more later, but I’d like to hear your thoughts on this deal.
