Interesting (and for some great) news, Yahoo! and Microsoft have decided to merge their messenger platform and form an alliance, possibly against AOL (notice the 56%). Yes, I said messenger platform and not the actual messenger, eg. Yahoo! users will be able to talk to MSN and vice verca, but will still be using their prefered messenger. I think this solves a great deal of annoyance me, having my family (friends) on Yahoo! and my friends on MSN.Looking at the numbers though, I would certainly agree with their decision. Actually, I think they’re actually also thinking of having Google in their alliance until of course Google gets AOL’s 5% (and moves up from its 0.5%), that is if Google moves up.

What’s interesting is that there is no ICQ. I mean, I thought the cool kids ditched their names on AOL, Yahoo!, MSN for numbers on ICQ? I guess I must’ve been thinking 1999. There is no Skype and they have a reason for this: numbers do not add up to 100% due to rounding. But I think they left out one major thing: piracy hubs [P2P, etc.] (and there are tens, wouldn’t like to name any though).

Overall, I think this is an excellent excellent move, both for the users and the companies. That’s one more program uninstalled from my system. And I ain’t regretting it. (that is until all this comes out though)
