With the companies having granted the US Department of Justice (DoJ) two
extensions to issue a decision on the deal, a fresh round of public
commentary was to be expected.

JPMorgan analyst Imran Khan issued a research note on Wednesday that
re-examines the potential of Yahoo reviving a search-only deal with
Microsoft, which the internet search pioneer rejected back in July.
Previously, Microsoft had offered to buy all of Yahoo for $33 a share, but
then walked away from the table after Yahoo countered with $37 a share.

Khan, noting the unlikelihood the DoJ will sign off on the Yahoo-Google
partnership in its current form, said: "We estimate that Yahoo could gain an
additional $725m in annual OCF through a Microsoft search deal. In our
estimates, outsourcing search to Microsoft could lead to $1.4bn in cost
savings which would more than offset our estimated revenue loss of $649m
resulting from affiliate revenue loss and the revenue split with Microsoft."

Khan explained the benefits the deal would offer Yahoo: "Without its search
business, Yahoo would be very clearly positioned as a content and display
advertising entity, thereby clarifying and defining its purpose to
advertisers and users. Additionally, the one time cash infusion of $1bn (as
was made in a previous offer) from the search asset purchase would allow the
company to be nimble in buying back shares at depressed prices, making
strategic acquisitions, and making more targeted headcount cuts."

Yahoo had previously noted it expected to generate $800m in its first year
of a Google search-advertising agreement, in which it would allow Google to
run its ads on the Yahoo search pages.

Meanwhile, senator Joe Barton, who heads the US congressional committee on
energy and commerce, sent a letter on Tuesday to the head of the DOJ's
antitrust unit, Thomas Barnett.

In his letter to Barnett, Barton urges the DoJ to "thoroughly investigate
issues of competition and privacy that Yahoo failed to address fully in
responding to questions about the online search advertising partnership
agreement between Google and Yahoo".

Barton also described his concerns about the deal: "Specifically, I am
concerned about the adverse effects such a partnership could have on
competition and pricing within the online search-advertising industry."

Expressing similar concerns is the US Public Interest Research Groups
(PIRG), a consumer group that opposes the proposed partnership. PIRG, which
does not accept any corporate donations, is sending opposition letters to
both Barnett and US attorney general Michael Mukasey, said Amina Fazlullah,
a PIRG spokeswoman.

She noted the organisation is concerned that the deal could leave Yahoo in a
weakened state. PIRG is concerned that companies in the internet industry,
when weakened, may take steps to regain a competitive edge by sharing an
increasing amount of their users' information, thereby affecting their

As a result, PIRG has been particularly interested in acquisitions in the
internet industry and their effects on those competitors that are not part
of the transactions.

Yahoo, however, contends its deal is misunderstood and would not result in
less competition or higher prices for advertisers. The internet search
pioneer has previously said it has no plans to exit the search-advertising
market should the deal be implemented.

In the meantime, Yahoo's shares Tuesday came within close range of falling
into the $10 a share range, setting a new five-year low of $11.25 a share
during intraday trading before ending the day at $12.36 per share. Yahoo's
shares closed Wednesday down 1.8 percent to $12.14 a share.

I am a person who believes the fragile ecosystems are being destroyed we need alternate energy.. Years ago people understood the using of the land.. the old wisdom from the groups that were here, the Incas the Aztec's the trading routes created for to help give people on earth the needed items, not for a bunch of people too make a bazillion dollars on.. the energy was here for the taking in an natural way, to co-exist with humankind to live to and to let other cultures live and thrive. No one believes that they are to grow up to be a slave to men only a small group of men. Why? what is the normal way? Not to be greedy there is enough to share.. with each other. Quit taking money from people who can't even afford to go to the dentist.. think back on the doctors who traded for eggs a chicken or a cow.. go back to the old days. Think read be happy and content. with living within your own means. ZZ

I sat on a river bank only to watch a bluebird take flight and chase the white bird and the eagle down to the rivers edge.
