Yahoo! Dodges The Bullet
Posted 05 May 2008 - 10:14 PM
From an outside perspective this feels better than having a nasty fight between Yahoo! and Microsoft. It looks like Yahoo! made themselves undesirable enough that Microsoft just decided to let the whole thing go. Is this the last that we will hear about a Yahoo!-Microsoft merger, most likely not. If Yahoo’s share price slips considerably in the next few years I would expect Microsoft to smell the blood again make another bid. At any rate I am sure that this episode has scared the pants off of many at Yahoo! and it will not be as easy next time, especially if an outside entity tries to mount a hostel take-over. Sometimes fear is a good thing and a great motivational tool that spurs new innovation. Perhaps some of the folks over in the Messenger division got a little fear and will release some nice upgrades.
