Why does Microsoft want its Yahoo!? "When it comes to Internet searching both companies have been left in the dust by Google," answered ABC's David Muir, and online search "is where the money is." Muir contrasted Google's annual revenue of $16bn with Yahoo!'s $6bn. CBS' Anthony Mason (at the tail of his unemployment videostream) contrasted market share: Google 77%, Yahoo! 16%. Jim Cramer, anchor of CNBC's Mad Money told NBC anchor Brian Williams that "Google finally has a competitor. I thought this was a master stroke by Microsoft." ABC's Muir pointed out that perhaps the shoe is on the other foot as Google is already going after Microsoft, "offering the same kinds of computer applications that for years have been Microsoft's bread and butter. Many of those programs are now free."
