Now for X Easy Payments of Only...[edit]

"...Google, the market leader in online advertising, which was worth $40 billion in 2007"
"...Yahoo were waiting for a bid of around $53 billion"

Feel how you may about Microsoft, but I am sick of these companies who are not outright refusing to get bought, but are instead more than willing to be... at the right (absurd) price. Consider NVidia's offer to VIA vs. AMD's offer to ATI. I don't recall ATI waiting for "the right price". --QUINTIX - (talk) 13:12, 4 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Seems to me Microsoft might be retracting their bid in hopes it would huurt Yahoo stock then they could come back with their original bid which would look alot better with cheap yahoo stock. They could just be moving on althogether but remember this is Microsoft.- 15:37, 4 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
