Yeah I heard rumors about this a few days ago in various 'techie' sites. There is also a recent rumor that MS is looking to buy Yahoo. If true, it means they are more worried about Google then they have suggested.

Does anyone still use MSN??
But if Microsoft buys Yahoo, then Google may have something to worry about.
Yahoo really isn't that bad, and I see more and more spam results in Google now and their index has been quite unstable lately with sites dropping in and out every second day etc...
