Why not Buy Google instead of Yahoo?

A Better Buy?

As Google's stock keeps dropping in price, Maybe MSN should take a look at acquiring them,

I know it would never get by the Feds and who knows who holds the majority of the stock. But it would be a wild scenario.

The two behemoths rolled into one! Next stop world domination!...KF :o)

They can't do it even if capitalisation of Google drops to $1 - everyone seems to have forgotten about peculiar way shareholding is structured in Google - the founders have full control even though they don't have majority of shares. So buying 100% shares on the open market won't result in control of the company.

Computers could end up being hardware with prompts to download OS from the internet.

why would buying 100% shares not give full control ?

Owning majority shares does not give you full control of a company. What gives you the control is the contracts. Majority shareholders get full control by default if there are no contracts to explicitly say who has control.
