I guess that’ll mean less usernames and passwords to remember…

MS makes a bid for Yahoo – $45 billion. 

Sounds like good news to me as a consumer… It’s sad to see one of the original web pioneers absorbed (I still remember when the IMDB was still hosted at Cardiff University), but Yahoo has kinda lost it’s way and MS and Yahoo combined would pose pretty strong opposition for Google.  

Putting aside the advertising side of things, Yahoo could be a great addition to the ‘Live’ side of MS, for example the prospect of Flickr and Photosynth coming together would be incredibly exciting.
