I agree buying PALM would not be a great idea for YHOO, as I've said before I think Microsoft would have a possibility to take over PALM but even so...

On eartlink I also agree for a 100%, I hope they're at least seriously considering it or maybe some crumbles from the bankrupt @Home??
And again, Yahoo! should seriously start bundling their services, but I expect them to do so soon as there have been a few user surveys asking Yahoo! visitors their opinion about that.

But I've come up with another take over target for Yahoo!. What about the internet browser company OPERA ? They've got a few millions of users and apparently are profitable too.
MSN shutting down its websites last week (and having to reopen them due to public outcry) shows they're quite easily scared by high quality products and OPERA certainly is the best browser out there. Yahoo! would conquer a few million loyal Opera users. They could redirect them to their services... and as you might have guessed some Opera users are quite anti-Microsoft and would be very loyal to Opera and possibly also support Yahoo! fiercely. I would also suspect that this privately held company wouldn't cost Yahoo! that much either. Yahoo! would gain a few high profile talented programmers they could use for other Y! services too...

Take over targets we've discussed so far are: EARTHLINK, VERISIGN, NEXTCARD & OPERA. And we gave the thumbs down for a possible PALM combination. Other suggestions or views on possible take over targets?
