+ - MS offers 44.6 Billion to buy Yahoo!

KnowTheory writes: Microsoft, in it's attempt to not be left in the dust by Google, has decided to make an offer to buy Yahoo! the search firm Google eclipsed then largely buried as it's #2 competitor. Microsoft claims that the two companies could save a billion dollars annually after successfully merged, and that it has a plan for integrating the two companies. There are definitely pieces of technology that the two companies could combine to great effect (e.g. Flickr + Photosynth), but one does wonder how the #2 search firm plus microsoft's extremely lackluster web presence could possibly be configured (perhaps like voltron?) to take on the Search Giant. Maybe they'll just fire or reassign all of MSN?
