Microsoft + Yahoo

I had a funny feeling now might be the time for Microsoft to acquire Yahoo. Yesterday, I went to Yahoo Mail for the first time in a looooong time. The new message it had notified me about turned out to be spam. When I closed the mail window, Firefox on OS X crashed. I recovered the browser session, closed that window again, another crash. Navigated away from Yahoo to another page, closed the window, crash. Used the "Zap" bookmarklet to disable all Javascript event handling and timers in the mail window before closing, crash.

At that point, I said to myself, Microsoft has got to have these guys. It's perfect synergy.
