Microsoft + Yahoo = SkyNet

I thought Google would be SkyNet, but now...

They say in any free society, there are always going to be two or three big names in an industry. Like Pepsi and Coca-Cola. Apparently the split is often 60-30-10 for 3 teams. So in the case of search engines, perhaps Google is 60, Yahoo is 30, MS is 10, and Ask.com is -4. I don't really know. All those numbers are probably wrong.

Anyway, if MS and Yahoo join up, they will become a formidable foe for former search king, Google. What happens then?

I don't know, but competition between corporations is great for the consumer. Hopefully all search results will improve, and the web will become more and more helpful.
