Does anyone think MSFT could build anything that would have the user base of Yahoo! for any price or in any amount of time? If MSFT wants to acquire the assets to have a presence on the Internet it isn't like they have a stable of acquisition targets to choose from. Even if they do buy Yahoo! they will probably just screw it up and not know what to do with it.
MSFT is lost on the Internet and until they learn to think differently they will still be lost no matter who or what they buy.
Not that I don't love Microsoft (because I do and always have), but those words ring so true that it actually hurts to read them.
