Yahoo! Shutters Auction site

May 9, 2007

Yahoo! has formally put Yahoo! Auctions out of their misery, announcing that they will stop the operation on June 3rd.

This clears the decks for a deeper eBay auction integration/portal deal (and future merger IMO) down the road.

eHoo! Update:

eBay market cap:$46b
YHOO market cap:$41b
Total:  $87b

Google: $145b

Delta: 40%  (eBay+Yahoo are equal to 60% the size of Google)
