Microsoft moves hugely into Search market

Well it had to happen sooner or later. Microsoft has bid over 44 billion dollars for Yahoo, and in a less publicised deal has acquired over 90% of FastSearch which covers the enterprise search market.

The cash on the table is staggering and reflects the value of the search market…….. there are also shouts of ‘anti trust’ and the usual fear of monopoly etc etc. But let’s face it, MSoft are an acquisitive company and the markets are low. Expect further market consolidation over the next few months!
