The geek world has been anxiously awaiting the verdict on whether Microsoft, which placed an unsolicited 44.6 billion dollar bid on Yahoo! last week, will actually acquire the struggling company (the latest: Google is mulling how they can help Yahoo, since Microsoft's bid can turn into a hostile takeover if they resist).
Such big news is actually underwhelming — Yahoo and Microsoft are two companies fighting to stay relevant. Though I remember back in the day when everyone and their mother used Yahoo as their primary search engine—those days are long gone. It's no surprise Yahoo was suffering, what with Google's search engine behemoth and Yahoo's other services, like instant messaging and music (which shut down yesterday), long ago eclipsed by other services. But it can't be completely unused, so I ask you: Whether it's for Internet searching, IMing, or anything else, do you Yahoo?
