Yahoo! preparing hostile takeover of Google
It is reported in today's issue of the off-line trade journal, RDF Express, that Yahoo! is quietly preparing a hostile takeover bid for arch-rival Google. No word on what the bid consists of or when it will be launched. No word, either, on what would become of Google founders Brin and Page should the bid be successful, though rumor has it they would each consider a monastery in the Far East, or, failing admittance there, belated entrance into the U.S. Marine Corps. Mobile Eyes will be watching this story closely in the coming days.
