Is it just me, or does anyone else agree that Ciao or Dooyoo will be next to get snapped up in the search/shopping war.

the reason i say this is because of epinions and shopping.com

good match (imo)

Good point, and one that I had been thinking about too.

Yahoo don't have a consumer website review site like eopinions so perhaps they will be keen to snap up Ciao or Dooyoo?

Alternatively if shopping.com become flush with cash after their IPO they might want to buy Ciao or Dooyoo for European content and/or to stop anyone else getting their hands on them.

Having said that shopping.com don't really have any European operations at the moment apart from the UK which is still branded under dealtime.co.uk

I think ciao is more interresting as they have a better infrastructure and a more brandable name imho.
