Google has 5% stake of AOL so say GOOOG!

Posted by rexdixon on December 21, 2006

Google made it’s move today with a $1 billion stake in AOL. It was only a matter of time. We all knew it was coming. AOL is on it’s last legs, and Google today has moved to take a 5% stake in the company.

This bodes well for AOL, and it’s user base. It won’t be dying in 2007. I would just be prepared to say GOOOG! I was thinking that it could have been a nice YAHHHOOOO! But looks like it will be GOOOOOG. The new chant of the AOL diehards.

Technically Speaking, I have been waiting and watching, and Google made a good move before someone else did.

    Yeah, check it.

    Or better yet, grab a working link for the article:

    Oh, and you don’t know what I think you’ve started.

    The Guardian Blog in the UK reports of a new meme about the deal making the rounds on the Web but they complain it makes no sense because the AOL/Google deal is over a year old:

    Good work, if you think *any* publicity is good publicity…
