Microsoft, Yahoo Execs Finally Meet

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Microsoft Corp. met with Yahoo Inc. to discuss the software maker’s unsolicited takeover bid earlier this week, a breakthrough that could be the first step toward a friendly deal between the two rivals.The meeting occurred Monday near Yahoo’s Sunnyvale headquarters, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke Friday on the condition of not being identified because the preliminary talks haven’t been formally disclosed.

No investments bankers attended Monday’s meeting, nor was there any discussion about whether Microsoft is willing to raise its offer, initially valued at $44.6 billion, or $31 per share. Yahoo’s board already has rejected that bid, arguing the company’s Internet franchise is worth more.

Although it’s unclear whether Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer and his Yahoo counterpart, Jerry Yang, attended Monday’s meeting, senior management from both companies were on hand. - New York Times

I’m doing my best to help out Bill Gates with his latest email tracking software but this situation calls for my full attention and yours as well. Bill sent me a personal email from his old Netscape email account and asked my thoughts on the new name for the former Yahoo. I’ve been scratching my head over it but this is what I have so far.


Let me know if you come up with some other names for the new Microsoft division soon to be formerly known as Yahoo. I’m under a hot deadline because Bill wants to come out with five versions and new releases that will lock up and close you out within the next year.

    It’ll stay Yahoo! Microsoft is just afraid of getting trounced by Google who already has open office on their gmail accounts. Nothing like editing an excel file on a computer without Microsoft products on it…

    I am a Google man but for some reason… I set my homepage as Yahoo! back when I had Prodigy back in college in 1996. baby!! that was my email…my how we have grown…

    This merger/buyout/takeover sucks. I hope the Yahoo news site isn’t affected. As far as MSM sites go, it’s the fastest and most complete. And unlike most news sites, you can get the first paragraph of a story by just moving the cursor over the headline without clicking.

    MSNBC is too sloooow, too many popups and too many of their stories are like the Roach Motel: no matter how many times you click on the Back arrow, you can’t go back.

    If that same format and ineptitude spreads to Yahoo! News, I may have to surf nothing but the “alternative” news sites. Come to think of it, maybe there’s a silver lining here after all…

    when Yahoo! has an error will the screen turn blue and will you need to reset your router?

    Yahoo! is also already Mozilla Firefox unfriendly (as well as Safari for that matter) and so what will happen next.

    Hey, if Microsoft can fix that POS Yahoo! Music Player, I’m all for the merger. I doubt if they can do it though.
