Microsoft offers $44.6B for Yahoo

steve ballmer If this deal occurs, I wish Yahoo and Microsoft all the best. However, combining two organizations with serious problems in search wouldn't yield one strong organization. It could even make things worse. As I see it, the only three real threats facing Google are
  1. Google itself, external: Growing concerns over privacy and transparency
  2. Google itself, internal: Maintaining culture, quality, and nimbleness given their explosive hiring rate
  3. The "X" factor: Some garage startup nobody's heard of yet
