Google and Microsoft, that's a pair of dead pairs, both of whom are famous for searching. B ut Google's search engine has been firmly in the top position, no matter how hard Yahoo efforts, or can not catch up with Google search.

Google and Yahoo, two Internet companies, ended up with different fortunes. O ne was acquired, and one was once worth more than Apple. T he two have gone to different fates, and it has to be said that fate really makes fun of people. If Yahoo had bought Google's founder's search algorithm, the world's Internet landscape would not have been reorganed.

Some people say, "Yahoo is the old lion, Google is the tiger of the young, Yahoo lost sooner or later." O thers say that "the world only needs Google", Yahoo will be depressed, the acquisition will be spit. In fact, feng shui rotation is still reasonable, thirty years east of the river thirty years west of the river, the original I look down on you, now I you can not afford to climb.
