Microsoft Announces Plans to Announce Yahoo Announcement
“We oughta know something–we oughta announce something in very short order,” Microsoft (MSFT) CEO Steve Ballmer said of the company’s acquisition standoff with Yahoo (YHOO) this morning.
Apparently in Ballmerese “short order” means “at some indeterminate point in the future,” because here we are at close of business and the company hasn’t announced anything except that it plans for an announcement. “With the right circumstances, it’ll happen,” Ballmer told The Wall Street Journal. “Without the right circumstances it won’t happen.”
