Microsoft/Yahoo redux

Filed under: Business, Technology — Tags: , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 4:46 pm

This is a very interesting take on the Microsoft offer for Yahoo.

The gist is MS might not be all that serious in wanting Yahoo (although I’m sure the offer is very real and MS would honor the offer with alacrity.) The Redmond behemoth might just want nothing more than to disrupt Yahoo (successful already, I’d say,) shake up the industry (very successful) and poach Yahoo employees in advance of the potential deal (have no idea about success there.)

The link goes to Slashdot with all those comments, plus additional links in the Slashdot post. Didn’t read the comments, and haven’t really lurked around Slashdot regularly for a long, long time. If it’s anything like it was years ago when I regularly read the site expect some rabid anti-MS action in the comments. Ought to be some decent insider information there as well.
