Analysts believe Yahoo will replace Google with its own search technology. In July, Yahoo acquired Overture for $1.6 billion. And in late 2002, Yahoo purchased search technology firm Inktomi. Industry watchers believe that Yahoo, which has used Google to power a large portion of its search results, is preparing to square off against Google in search technology this year. According to reports in October, Google is planning an initial public offering for March of 2004.
