No Rush for MS-Yahoo Deal

I've heard so much about the Microsoft-Yahoo search deal that I'm always surprised to learn that it's not yet consummated, and that Yahoo search still drives Yahoo. Looks like I'm going to have to get used to this as the deal is apparently more delayed than a Microsoft software release.

The deal between the two was supposed to be finalized this week, but Microsoft and Yahoo didn't finish their paperwork. Now it's on hold for an unspecified period of time. Since I use Yahoo only for IM, I suppose I can wait a little longer.
