I ran across a Slashdot story that confused the heck out of me, and I work for one of the companies involved.
Buying all or part of AOL may be the first part of the master plan, as Google relies heavily on the advertising pages that come from Yahoo, since it now syndicates its search to Google.
I can't figure out what that means. As far as I cannot tell, Google does not rely on advertising pages that "come from Yahoo" (whatever that means), nor does Yahoo "syndicate its search to Google."
Can anyone out there figure out WTF they're getting at?
