Yahoo Yodel Becomes High-Pitched Funeral Keen
Yahoo’s quite the damsel in distress these days, isn’t it? The Internet underachiever has reportedly renewed its talks with Google, as it desperately searches for alternatives to Microsoft’s $44.6 billion takeover bid. “Jerry [Yang, Yahoo CEO] is as motivated as hell to try anything he can,” a source familiar with the deal told the Los Angeles Times. “Google is hyper-competitive, and it wants to do anything it can, anytime it can, to stop Microsoft from getting one foot in the door.”
Bit of a truism, that. Still, the report–if it’s true–could mean Yahoo is considering turning over its search advertising business to Google.
