My commentary on a Microsoft/Yahoo! merger was sarcastic, but Fake Steve Jobs has even better visual imagery. “The Borg-Yahoo merger won’t work. Here’s why. It’s like taking the two guys who finished second and third in a 100-yard dash and tying their legs together and asking for a rematch, believing that now they’ll run faster.” And “Imagine a circus act in which two enormous, clumsy, awkward elephants that don’t really like each other are supposed to mate while riding on skateboards.” Hat-tip to Mark Pesce.
My commentary on Microsoft’s bid for Yahoo! has been published in Crikey.
It’s behind the paywall, but a free trial is available. I’ll write a public piece tomorrow.
