Microsoft in Talks with Yahoo! to buy the The Internet search Giant for 20 Billion$

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by quantum physics, Nov 30, 2008.

    Sources say that Microsoft has again contemplated bidding for the search Engine Giant for a speculated 20 Billion Usd.
    I think the move was almost on paper after Jerry Yang resigned.


    What do you guys think?
    will Yahoo sell this time?

    yang cost them approximately 27.5 billion when he and his board initially rejected the proposal back in May of this year. hahaha idiot i must say!

    My opinion, yes, they will sell now, especially after shares dropping what? 60%

    If yahoo and microsoft will combine their power. It would be a MsY vs Google search engine market share. And Yahoo Geocities will become Microsoft Cities?

    I am quite sure they will sell. They have missed a great opportunity before and I don't think they will pass up on this one.

    I personally would like to see more search engine. Less competition = less innovations.
