Yahoo to Merge with AOL???

This is a weird time for Yahoo. The once powerful web destination has been fending off an attack for ownership by Microsoft for a while now. Rumors of a hostile takeover have been flying.

Now comes word from the Wall Street Journal that AOL may be merging with Yahoo to form a super Internet company. Supposedly Time Warner would sell AOL to Yahoo and then add a bunch of cash.

I'm not sure what this all means, but Yahoo needs help. They were once a hip center of Internet culture, but they've become stale; not really seeming to know who they want to appeal to. Of course it's not like AOL is exactly setting the world on fire either, but maybe together they can make something happen.
