From afar, during the Week of Acquisitions, we were joking that Yahoo would buy Ford. Because, if you think about it, Yahoo is a media company, and cars, well, have car stereos in them, which means Ford is a manufacturer of media delivery vehicles.

It starts making sense, really. Instead of selling cars, Yahoo could sell the service of listening to music while you commute, and you'd get the car for free. You'd fill up with music at the same time as filling up with gas. There could be discounts for promoted bands. (Although, instead of a key, you'd have to give a password and your mother's maiden name.) You'd be renting a huge, ride-on mp3 player, with wheels.
