Google and e-Bay have merged!

There was an email from John Lambie (Regional Digital Creative Director, Bates Asia) recently, where he asked readers to comment on what we think is that one website which survived the dot com crash successfully in the past.

Without batting an eyelid, I replied 'Yahoo!'.

And to hear a couple of days later that Yahoo is laying off 1000 employees was ironical indeed.

Well, on the brighter side, if Microsoft is joining hands with Yahoo, Google surely has some competition coming its way!

Be it digital advertising solutions on Digg or the $240m advertising deal with Facebook,
Microsoft's strategies are intriguing indeed!

(P.S: Google and e-bay haven't merged of course. That's one of those email forwards I dug up from my inbox. Goobay in Kannada means 'Owl' :P)
