With news of Microsoft’s $44.6 billion bid to buy Yahoo!, can you help but wonder, will the new Microhoo! (or whatever shape the new entity or entities take) be able to take on Google’s cool factor? (I believe that’s the longest phrase I’ve ever written with so many consecutive “oo“‘s.)
I’m not just talking about perceived coolness. But what about design? How will the new company approach user interfaces and the like? What opportunities might lie ahead in this arena for the new entity, with such a huge stage and everyone, including Google, paying rapt attention to any sort of re-design for their sites?
What comes next? The Bloomberg Businessweek Innovation and Design blog chronicles new tools for creativity and collaboration, innovation case studies in both the corporate and social sectors, and the new ideas that have the power to change the way things have always been done.
