Microsoft and Yahoo agree search deal. The Opportunity for MPS is Google Apps.

The rule of business in a user network economy is crush them, buy them or partner with them. It seems that Microsoft has moved to "partner with them." / Technology - Microsoft and Yahoo agree search deal:
"Microsoft and Yahoo agreed on Wednesday to an online alliance that could create a more formidable rival to Google in the search business.

In a joint statement, the companies confirmed the widely expected deal, which will give Microsoft a 10-year licence to integrate Yahoo’s search technology into its exisitng search platforms, while Yahoo will become the “relationship sales force” for advertisers for both companies."
The opportunity for MPS
Become the "relationship sales force" for Google Apps and help fix bottom of the education pyramid and all levels of the health delivery pyramid in the process.

It will drive the IT guys nuts.

  1. Wow! Finally Microsoft has reached a deal Yahoo for an internet search partnership. Will the newly announced deal between giants Microsoft and Yahoo be a good thing? Got to wait and see. But atleast Microsoft and Yahoo deal is straightforward and not complex at all and ofcourse, the negotiation talks have been going for long. I was just curious to know all the past negotiations between Microsoft and Yahoo so collected all the articles and links (more than 200) related to the current merger and the previous events or negotiations between Microsoft and Yahoo.
