    Yes, I found that curious too. Just a quick note that was hardly noticed...and, yeah, no official word from either side.
    SEMrush
    But if Yahoo rejected Microsoft and they did it for more money...that's a major gamble considering their shares are dropping like heavy rocks. Not to mention just how badly their webhosting and email service is doing for actual users (me)!

    But to think that Google will place a bid - at this stage if Yahoo was to accept such a bid from Google that would be the ultimate embarassment, in my view. They'll be slapping their own faces!!

    Cant wait to see the final outcome.

    But come to think of it, this may be a major play from Yahoo to boost their share prices. I'd certainly not sell their shares now. If that much money is rejected, then its only because something is happening in the background that we're not aware of.

    Meantime, yahoo users (liek me) grit teeth at the crappy state of their service.

    I'll tell you what the real headache here is. I work on a mac. I've tried with firefox, camino and safari to make the new yahoo email work properly for me to no avail. I have serious problems accessing my yahoo mail because it stalls constantly. I dont know if everyone is having the same problem but i'm beginning to think that i'm a persona non grata for using a mac!!!?

    Funny thing is, I cant access my inbox because it stalls, but their ads always show rather nicely on the page!!
    So i switched to the classic version to see if i could see my inbox. When I made the swtich, a box appears asking me for feedback on how i like their service...they got my feedback alright. I gave them a piece of my portuguese mind!

    Whoever is thinking of taking over yahoo, i beg you to speed it up. i am suffering with their horrid system right now!

    i guess refusing a takeover bid from a huge company makes your company look good. It makes your company look like you're in good financial standing

    HOT DAMN!

    I glad to see Yahoo knows it's own worth. They're stock will go down in the short run, but they're going to make sure they put up the good fight and come back stronger in the end.

    Beggars can't be choosers (or maybe they can?)...Yahoo is retarded for holding out on the bid. I hope Microsoft backs out of the deal and lets them crash and burn for being greedy. Yapoo deserves an ugly fate :p

    I think Yahoo is worth more than the amount Microsoft has offered ($44 billion). They will better off looking for ventures with AOL or Disney.

    The Justice Dept will not allow G to take over Yahoo at any point of time. The anti trust and monopoly laws would be violated.

    What's wrong with Yahoo, their stock is trading under 30 and they want 40, that's insane.

    Of the two evils, Google and Microsoft, I prefer the lesser one, Microsoft. Google is becoming way too powerful for our own good.

    I hope microsoft doesnt buy yahoo. Microsoft tends to screw up alot anyways. I dont find them reliable and I dont want them to screw up a part of the internet. Imagine logging on to yahoo and seeing the message "this program has performerd an illegal operation and will be shut down". lol.

    Companies like Asus are starting to move away from microsoft and use linux. It saves alot of money for both asus and consumers.
    Imo, microsoft's OS is overpriced.
    In the future, imo, microsoft's OS wont be as dominant as it is now. Its time companies wake up a little and move away from microsoft.

    And i hope some things get done so google doesnt get even bigger and the feds do their job and prevent google from acquiring yahoo if they try it.

    I would have sold out at that price! I can't believe they said no. I bet Microsoft makes one more offer and if gets denied again will pull back. They should concentrate on making MSN better before they do anything.
