Not great news for Y! (who helped spawn Google btw), who have already signed a deal to farm out much of its search operation to Microsoft and if it loses more of its share of the search market, will reduce the value of the deal with MSN.

Yahoo! also saw French engineers go on strike this week. Strikes, in France? Surely not I hear you cry. Sarcasm aside, they were striking because Carol Bartz, Yahoo!’s new CEO wants to close down the R&D center and put 78 engineers out of work. Their ultimate come back is to start a blog…using Google’s software. Ouch.
