Google, Pots, and Kettles.

Inevitably you’ve seen Google’s commentary on the Microsoft bid for Yahoo!. Beyond Google trying to preserve the status quo (where they are #1), I am amused by the sniping going on.

A monopoly on the desktop? What about a monopoly on search and online advertising? Hello kettle? This is pot.

Nobody should construe this post from Google as being helpful to Yahoo!. I don’t have an opinion about a Microsoft/Yahoo! merger, but if anything it seems like Google might actually think this whole deal might threaten some of their business. Should be interesting.
