The U.S. Justice Department and the European Union have approved a deal in which Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. would combine their Web search operations, the companies said Thursday. In a joint statement, the two companies said they expect to complete the transitioning of Yahoo's search activities to Microsoft by the end of 2010, but some advertising partners may not be moved over until the following year. All customers and partners are expected to be transitioned by early 2012.
