Scoble on Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo

He doesn't think Google actually cares about a Microsoft-Yahoo merger, it just wants to slow things down. Google isn't taking its eye off the most important ball:
Every month longer that this deal takes is tens of millions in Google’s pockets. Why? Well, the real race today isn’t for search. Isn’t for email. Isn’t for IM. It’s for ownership of your mobile phone.
I concur for the most part. The mobile phone is a cheap, internetworked platform that is being adopted globally at a furious rate. Microsoft is stuck supporting its legacy OS for PCs, while Google is putting together an OS and apps for a platform that will be in everyone's pockets. Meanwhile, no one is in love with Windows Mobile.
