Live beats google ? .... WTF !!

Now If I hadn't seen this myself I wouldn't have believed it ! Its official according to alexa data Microsoft's answer to google , beats its nemesis in raw visitor statistics, which also saw the Search Giant dethroned from Rank 2.

Alexa records data for only those people who have Alexa toolbar in their browser which would mean the numbers of Live users could even be higher.

But there isn't much to worry about as Alexa treats each country Google site separately hence if you combine all the Google sites and pitch them against the G would win hands down.

Also the fact many Google powered searches are done from smaller websites.

But Google should be turning some hair gray as Live is starting pose a serious threat .

Yahoo rejects Microsoft bid ....Phew !

I don't know why I hate microsoft ...but then who doesn't ? Something about microsoft make you squirm with disgust. I may be writing this using a Winxp but it has to do with lack of options and not by preference !

And when Microsoft announced it bid for yahoo for $41.6 billion I started looking for alternatives, I guess the biggest loss would have been using Yahoo mail which is by far the best webmail, well it seems I can continue using Yahoo mail for a little bit longer.

But 41.6 B was a mediocre evaluation of yahoo when you consider Microsoft evaluated Facebook at 15 B to have bought 1.6% at 240 Million, yahoo is still most visited online property, yet this bid was prompted most likely to face off against Google which posing a bigger irritation to Microsoft that to yahoo !

Then this begs the question does microsoft needs yahoo more that yahoo needs Microsoft ? What do you think !
