Microsoft Bids For Yahoo
Last week, Microsoft offered a bid worth over $44 billion for Internet search giant Yahoo. Currently Google has approximately 60 percent of the market for Internet searches.

Even though this will be barely half of Google’s market, it has already caused a small ruckus by Google. On Sunday Google called upon antitrust regulators to prevent this deal. Nevertheless many experts predict that the deal will go through although, as of Sunday, Yahoo said it needs time to examine the deal.
