Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo

Quote:
Microsoft has offered to buy the search engine company Yahoo for $44.6bn (£22.4bn) in cash and shares.

The offer, contained in a letter to Yahoo's board, is 62% above Yahoo's closing share price on Thursday.

Yahoo cut its revenue forecasts earlier this week and said it would have to spend an additional $300m this year trying to revive the company.

It has been struggling in recent years to compete with Google, which has also been a competitor to Microsoft.

Microsoft! is more like it :P
Actually I'd like to see Microsoft buy out Yahoo, but I'm sure there are a lot of MSN/Live haters who will hate it.

Yacrohooo!

Google is already against it and are asking the antitrust commisions to look into it, the only good I could see coming from this is me not needing a yahoo account to register at flickr.
