Icahn’s new Nominees will help Monopolize the web with Microsoft?

Well, this is a blog about whether Icahn’s new decision will make a better internet for all of us or not.

What is proposing is a serious push for Yahoo (YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT) to merge, this is great for investors, a serious threat to the internet community.

To Icahn’s letter and his new Nominees, the only concern I have is that MicroHoo will not be so great for us consumers.

Why?

Well, Microsoft has proven itself “useless” with its new Vista operating system. I do not condone “monopolized” technology that does not work well. If Vista proved to be otherwise, I might not think this way but especially after how Microsoft and all its partner PC retailers including Dell, HP, and others have NOT PROVIDED an XP solution to the new computers, this MicroYahoo thing will just kill off Yahoo completely and eventually we are all going to end up using crappy software and web search engine from Microsoft.

On the bright side, Microsoft has done some good things like the TellMe service for blackberry and the World Wide Telecope. They are doing more things to make the internet better but I am just afraid of what’s on the back of their mind.

I won’t even go back to the Netscape Microsoft era but I think Microsoft will do better if they stayed completely away from the search engine market as much as possible. Heck, they have Live search, why do they need to aquire Yahoo?

What I’d rather see than MicroHoo

Personally, I would rather see Google (GOOG) + Yahoo (YHOO), a GooHoo search engine would be more likely better fit for us consumers.

    This article neglects to point out that Google is an alternative search engine to Yahoo (in fact, the world’s most popular- no one uses the hideous yahoo outside of the US), also completely misses the underlying points in the Microsoft/Yahoo/Google online interaction war…

    Hi Alex,

    Actually, I personally know that people in Korea use more Yahoo than Google. Yahoo is way bigger than Google as far as Koreans are concerned so there are countries who rely on Yahoo more than Google.

    But yes, Google’s search engine is superior to Yahoo for “English” language, but Google does not do well with all languages such as Korean.

    Here’s a chart to prove my point:
