Jump back, what's that sound

It's Yahoo! testing Google AdSense for its search ads. c|net is calling this a failure of Panama, born of the acquisition of Overture by Y!, promised to compete with G. That didn't happen. This basically closes the book on the Overture acquisition, which will go down with others of its ilk (Compaq-Digital, HP-Compaq, etc.).

Of course, M$ is now complaining that a Y!-G partnership is anticompetitive. I won't even bother to provide a link; you know that old saying about the pot and the kettle ...

On the other hand it is probably better then getting bought by Microsoft.

Man. I remember when our goal to was "Beat Yahoo and spank Google." Now not even Yahoo's looking like it'll survive for long.

I am contractually obligated not to say anything bad about Yahoo, so will stop here. ^_~
