MacJury #807: More on the Microsoft/Yahoo Merger, and “Can I Get Rid of Office Yet?”

The MacJury hears more evidence on the on-again, off-again Microsoft/Yahoo merger…or buyout…or whatever it is as you read this. The panel discusses the latest information, Yahoo’s motivations, Google’s involvement in the developments, and why you should feel sorry for Microsoft. Also on the docket is the question of whether current software such as iWork ’08, open source alternatives and cloud computing make it possible to abandon the Microsoft Office suite.

The members of the panel include:
