Update: Take a look at techmeme. Stories are coming in left right and centre, each with different views. I believe Richard Scobleizer when he says No Microhoo!
……in other acquisition news in the technology space what appears to be early-stage discussions between Microsoft and Yahoo are taking place, with the parties considering a merger or some kind of match-up that would pair their respective strengths. The two companies explored a combination a year ago, but those talks went nowhere.
It will be interesting watching this pan-out. Last month Microsoft and others including Yahoo, lost the chance to buy DoubleClick when Google swooped in and bought the online ad specialist for $3.1 billion.I’d also like to see Microsoft move into the SaaS space, and maybe a tie-up with Yahoo! could make that step a closer reality?
As always any comments welcomed!
