    I can't see Yahoo being able to offer up enough money to buy E-bay. Those guy make mad cash every day.

    What that makes no sense Fresh. Like i stated in the first post it is an internal rumor and i cannot give out merchant specific information for fees and stuff that would have me fired.

    So this is RUMOR ONLY.

    The popular rumor I have heard is that Microsoft is eyeing up Yahoo. Which would make sense since they basically integrated their IM services already. The speculation behind this rumor is that Microsoft wants to compete with Google in the "on-line industry".

    I've also heard rumors that Yahoo is trying to grab Facebook.com too in there own efforts to compete with Google/Myspace.

    So if Yahoo gets Facebook and Ebay, and then Microsoft gets Yahoo, me thinks the world gets screwed. :(

    Fresh is referring to an ages-old (like 2002? 2003?) TFW thread that's become the stuff of legends around here. Google "He Tell Me" to get in on the joke.

    Now I feel like Shaun. Maybe I should go watch some daytime drama TV, eat too much ice cream, have a good cry and wax intellectual on Britney vs. Jessica.

    Meh. No offense, Scourge, but I stopped using Yahoo services a long time ago. Google & eBay & Amazon & LiveJournal FTW.

    deep inside, we all have a little shaun c in us.

    that was not intended to be a gay joke btw.
