    Hey, the guy's getting old -- maybe he's forgotten that he attended the meetings. :laugh:

    Seriously, this is a mess -- I don't think Microsoft's going to raise the price at all -- they'll just keep lowering it as "punishment" for Yahoo's board initially rejecting the offer.

    That's what I dislike about Microsoft the most -- isn't the antitrust violations, isn't the corrupt business practices, isn't the crappy products -- it's the damn arrogance. They're like an aging frat boy who was once the star quarterback for his high school football team, but is now a bit older, and they're still trying to push people around like they're still hot shit. :shadedshu

    Wish Google jumps in and declares it could pay the 'real price', acquire Yahoo! This time the old man could lift his table and throw it across the office....the next few days seeing a cardiologist. :p

    I'm glad MS stays away from Y!

    ^That's a live image. Keeps updating. You reload, it updates. I smell a sabotage. Maybe MS is playing foul with the investors..."sell your stock, take this XboX Live subscription home to Jr."

    jk...bad joke

    Lol that letter is quite awesome, I would love for Microsoft to destroy Yahoo now. Five thumbs up for having balls though! He knows he'll get fired following the acquisition.

    That is good news for the employees of Yahoo..:)..Whenever one company buys out another, they usually sh!tcan the infrastructure and replace it with their own..:shadedshu..Leaving many scrambling to find new jobs..:wtf:..business, whether it be small or big is kinda evil that way..:twitch:..Kudos to Yahoo for not caving in to the gluttonous bullying pig..:toast:

    Don't worry, Google is the new NVidia. One of those companies that come out of nowhere and take the lead.

    Google won't fall to anyone. Bta, your right 100%. Yahoo, has been done wrong with the fact that Google did come from no where and just take over. Yahoo has done so much to their front page in order to get more people to come, and yet Google is still the one that everyone uses... Even shows say "I've googled you, and found this on ya." GOOGLE is everywhere and its not on the ropes like Yahoo is. Yet, Yahoo does have a strong following for what they added... Its not a Search tool, its an Entertainment and Daily use page.

    Yahoo, Pwn'd ya Microsoft. And glad someone did it.

    Ironically, Yahoo gave Google a huge boost in it's early days by using Google as their default search provider, lol. I honestly don't think there is anything Yahoo can do to stop Microsoft now aside from buying back all their stocks and going private, and they obviously cannot afford to do that.
