502384 story Google And Microsoft Cross Swords Over Yahoo! 181 Posted by Zonk on Monday February 04, 2008 @08:09AM from the just-a-tiny-bit-biased dept. watzinaneihm writes "In a blog post Google has called Yahoo/Microsoft merger bad for the future of the internet. It is worried about the number of email and IM accounts this merged entity would control. Microsoft has countered with the argument that Google is actually the big bully in this instance, with most of the search market already tied up. The New York Times, in the meantime, has accused Google of a Microsoft fixation."
