According to management Yahoo! is keeping its eyes open to buy some companies... But which ones would you think are an almost 'perfect fit' for yahoo?

I still think Yahoo! should take over an ISP like Earthlink. When people pay Yahoo! to access the net, they've got an instant 'credit card relationship' with Yahoo!, probably making it easier for people to pay Yahoo! for other premium services too.

The other one I have in mind I just read about. The online credit card provider Nextcard... They're looking for a buyer. Nextcard has over 1 million members and has been named best online credit card 4 years in a row. Yahoo! couldn't possibly get a closer 'credit card relationship' than that can they? ;) I would imagine a company like Nextcard wouldn't be such a huge investment as taking over an ISP too...

Anyway these are my thoughts, does anyone have any other possible companies in mind?
