So please, come back to earth in terms of your Perspicuous. CompWorld
iblaine, with all do respect, I think your going a bit overboard on that. First off, the US gov't would not allow a company to have that much power over its users. Number two, Amazon.com has a bigger market value than Yahoo, so that is not likely to happen. Mainly due to the fact that Yahoo does not have that type of money for that kind of purchase. Also, Bezos would NEVER allow Amazon to become Acquired. Number three, the Justice Dept. would NEVER allow MSN to acquire Dealtime. So far, everything you had suggested violates the US and EU Anti-Trust laws.
So please, come back to earth in terms of your Perspicuous.
