Yahoo Payments?

Everyone is talking about Google’s upcoming payment product. Will it squash PayPal or will it just sell widgets on Google Base? I wouldnt’ know. With all the hype about Google’s payment strategy, no one seems to be talking much about Yahoo anymore. Paydirect was buried a couple years back, and since then, I haven’t heard the word “Yahoo” and “payments” in the same breath. With Google and Yahoo competing for product parity on so many other levels, I can’t help but wonder if we might see a deal between Yahoo and PayPal one of these days. PayPal has got to be working on a strategy to fend of Google payments if indeed it does become a serious threat. I wonder if Yahoo as a massive channel partner could ever be part of that strategy?
