     Yahoo and Microsoft’s merger negotiations probably made them seem like two desperate companies about to go under.

    It’s all been great marketing for the Google-rilla.  

    Ask has the fewest searches, which is too bad – but when I use Ask, I find what I want right away, so maybe that’s why there are fewer searches.  I spend less time jumping around.
