The deal means Microsoft and Yahoo will handle about 30 percent of U.S. Internet searches, against Google’s 65 percent.

A long-rumored partnership between software giant Microsoft and Internet giant Yahoo has come to pass. In an effort to tag-team Google, Microsoft will combine its new Bing search engine with Yahoo’s vast advertising empire.

The BBC:

Yahoo and Microsoft have announced a long-rumoured internet search deal that will help the two companies take on chief rival Google.

Could this power struggle between Microsoft and Google be why I have been knocked out of Google Classic, Google Mail and my personal iGoogle?  Something is going on that has totally messed up my Google use.

If anyone knows what is happening with Google, I would certainly like to be informed, because Yahoo doesn’t allow comments.

I use the Firefox browser and am still able to reach my banks, but there is definitely a shut down that keeps me totally out of G-mail. 

Talk about China—this is happening in the United States.
 
I hope Google can get my Gmail back along with my personal iGoogle that I am so fond of using.

Hopefully, someone will know what is happening, other than a crack down on free speech.
