Questioning the Google-Yahoo Search Deal

BusinessWeek technology reporters Spencer Ante, Heather Green, Arik Hesseldahl and Catherine Holahan talk about new iPods and the health of Steve Jobs, the latest BlackBerry Pearl, and the Google-Yahoo antitrust investigation.

Check out the video here.

Also, today Joe Nocera from the New York Times devoted his column to questioning the Google-Yahoo search deal by focusing on the tale of Internet entrepreneur Dan Savage. Nocera was right in zeroing in on Google’s ability to set a price floor for search engine keywords. Determining whether or not this price-setting ability can have anti-competitive effects is likely to be a central question of the DoJ’s analysis, as BW’s Catherine Holahan points out in our Dish segment.
