A weird assortment of lobby groups has come out against Google and Yahoo! working together. Although there is no formal deal in place, lobbyists including the Black Leadership Forum (which represents 35 black activist organisations), the League of Rural Voters and the Corn Growers Association have written to the Justice …

"Surely even they aren't that low."
That was a true "mouthful of coke meet monitor" moment!
Yahoo! doesn't seem to understand they are making a deal with the devil. Google believes you should keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. So close, you can eventually take them over and knock out Yahoo!'s board of tards.

what makes you think that yahoo isn't thinking the same and keeping their enemies closer?
You'll pry my Yahoo out of my cold, dead hands
Really. I'd rather see a Google-Yahoo deal than let Microsopht take over Yahoo!. I think Google understands this, and would prefer to have its rival healthy than having to confront its archnemesis fused with Yahoo!
Google and Yahoo Merger
Maybe the two companies can merge and call the new entity Google with the the "oo" coming from Yahoo in a symbolic representation of Google having taken their gonads.
