Submission + - Microsoft bids $45 billion for Yahoo (cnn.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft has made a $45B(US) bid for Yahoo. According to this article, this would be a stock and cash deal for shares of Yahoo. Maybe this will help Microsoft spend some of their $20B(US) cash. This is apparently in response to the growth of Google.

Is consolidation in the search market good? Is this good or bad for the Internet as a whole?

I've got a bad feeling about this.
