A lot of people seem to be looking for interesting twists to this story because otherwise they're just left scratching their heads.

It seems that there's widespread agreement that Microsoft offered too much for Yahoo, and plenty of people trying to figure out why MS is bothering at all. The Economist article you linked to certainly conveys this.

So where's the promise of innovation? Based on Microsoft's history and the qualities of this deal, most articles I've read see a promise of more scummy marketing tricks and monopolistic gimmicks.

Oh, and "the search-engine market surely has more monopoly power nowadays than the desktop market"... what is he smoking?
