Microsoft and Yahoo

I personally think that Microsoft proposed adquisition of Yahoo is a good idea. Specifically, from my little part of the universe (data mining, predictive modeling, and analytics) Microsoft has powerful tools in SQL 2005 Server Analysis Services and Excel 2007 when used together. Microsoft and Yahoo have mature and first-of-class research laboratories. I believe that this type of adquisition will benefit the consumer of healthcare and other industries.

I specifically agree with the recommendation of using predictive modeling for revenue and costs.
