Microsoft and Yahoo: $50 billion reasons to attack Google?

Software maker Microsoft Corp. asked search engine operator Yahoo Inc. to re-enter formal negotiations for an acquisition that could be worth $50 billion, the New York Post reported on Friday.

Microsoft is feeling increasing pressure to compete with Google Inc. which plans to beef up its portfolio with a $3.1 billion buy of online advertising company DoubleClick Inc.

Wow. $50 billion. I'm thinkin' Microsoft is getting serious about their intentions to compete with Google.

Is Google scared?

I don't think so.

Should they be?
