Microsoft should be allowed to acquire Yahoo but…

February 1, 2008

Wow.  Although it has been speculated for years I didn’t expect it to actually happen.  It probably still won’t.  It should be scrutinized for anti-trust behavior.  Google should have been as well when they acquired DoubleClick.  I guess when you are under a pro-business administration you can be surprised what they let through.

I think they should be allowed to do it but it should and will be scrutinized.  I believe that Microsoft should be split along server/business/consumer lines and that their web business lies in the consumer space.  The should be enforced before this deal is approved.
