Probably, but it does still remain to be seen.  Yahoo was willing to pay 
them $1B.  But yesterday they only got $740M.  ($240M from MS, plus 
another $500M from 2 hedge funds.)  Yes, they probably will take in more 
in the long run this way ... but you never know.  If bubble 2.0 decides 
to pop, or Osama Bin Laden decides to do something nasty again, their 
window of opportunity could slam shut hard.
