Twitter was all a-twitter this morning with the rumor that Google (GOOG) was among the potential suitors for Yahoo! (YHOO). Of course, we've all learned to take Yahoo acquisition rumors with a grain of salt. There are few internet or media players who haven't been rumored as Yahoo acquirers in the past three years and this is hardly the first time that Google's name has come up.
Great overview by Barry Graubart. I think GooHoo is a Mars vs. Venus scenario - very different cultures. That said, with the Ad business maturing at Google, they could use some of the talent, content and yes, technology as a BASE in which to build a more mature media business.
