Yahoo! - AOL Merger?

Hedge fund still pushing Yahoo-AOL deal - Jan. 8, 2015

Yahoo invented the web advertising . . . America Online (AOL) brought a graphical front end to the "world wide web" . . . would this merger basically just kill two old internet birds with one stone?

AOL? What about Compuserve and Earthlink?

The only reasons I know Yahoo is still around is the Mrs. and I have used @yahoo.com for our personal email addresses over the years and various internet providers so we didn't have to change them each time we switched providers. And AT&T U-verse, which we had and now have through Frontier, piggy-backed Yahoo, too.

AOL still exists. In some areas dial up is the only option for internet access.

Sometimes you've got to chain two sinking ships together.
