Microsoft’s Internet

So with the likes of Fake Steve Jobs calling Steve Ballmer’s touch-and-go buyout offer of Yahoo a brilliant strategy … you have to wonder what’s going on with the re-ignition of buyout talks. I mean, after causing pure chaos on the Yahoo Board and walking away without spending a dime … why not just declare “mission accomplished” and let Yahoo implode?

The neatest answer so far is spelled out below. (Yes, I know its Scoble).

I’m hearing these rumors too that John Furrier (my ex-boss) is reporting. That Microsoft will buy Yahoo’s search and then buy Facebook for $15 to $20 billion. Add that to all the news that Microsoft is buying Yahoo’s search and that gets very interesting.

Boom!

Now Microsoft/Yahoo search will have access to HUGE SWATHS of Internet info that Google will NOT have access to.

Data and social graph portability is dead on arrival.

Microsoft just bought itself a search strategy that sure looks like a winner to me.
