Microsoft + Yahoo May 3, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Tech News.
There has been some talk on Wall Street of a possible merger between Microsoft and Yahoo or an acquisition of Yahoo by Microsoft.
My take; So far its just a rumor and wouldnt put any cash on it. Yang and Ballmer hate each other but I do expect a similar deal for cooperation similar to the IM interoperability deal. I dont think an acquisition will happen. Google will raise "anti-trust" issues even though right now they are the king of internet search. One to watch, nothing to get excited over yet.
