Rumormill: Microsoft to buy Yahoo

Update 8:56pm: Talks are reported to be over. There is no mention of any kind of deal.

[Image: Yahoo logo]There is nothing definitive, yet, but Yahoo and Microsoft are having formal discussions. It is speculated that Microsoft is trying to acquire Yahoo. This is a benefit for both companies, as Microsoft gains internet presence and Yahoo get additional financial backing along with other services to play with.

I never really thought that Yahoo ever stood a chance against Google, especially in the "extras" market (Gmail, etc). Yahoo's stance has always been the obnoxious banners that swirl around and are overall annoying. Google has always taken care that it is as unobtrusive as possible. Besides, I prefer the simplicity of Google's interface.
