In the beginning there was X = Xtra, M = MSN, Y = Yahoo and G = Google
X+M=XM but Y>M so (X-M)+Y=YX now YX<>M but M+Y>YX leaving X<MY or XMY>YX but XMY<G
So is it back to X on its own which is a lot less than either M or Y but XMY will probably never be greater than G.
And according to the media Y = $50b
I am looking forward to the TV ad. Now do they add an extra male or female to represent the 'M' in the already heterosexual Y!X relationship? I guess you could refer to XMY as a ménage à trois and Labour may need to consider expanding the laws around Civil Unions to include a third party. I just wonder what happens if 'G' ever decides to join 'XMY'? The traditional nuclear family was so much easier!

One question, when did M+Y? I thought Y/M a few days ago in a rumour of splitting their JV on IM? Also, there is no chance that XMY will ever exist, therefore XMY!>YX or even XMY!
In short draw, X is still the worst out, or worse than previous state.

I think your blog has captured NZ Herald's attention.

"M + Y is NOT greater than G", according to the bloggers watching the fascinating M&A (mergers and acquisitions) byplays involving Microsoft, Yahoo! and Google lately.
And this "blogger" that mentioned in the story, could most likely be you, as it seems like we're doing "math" here...
