Microsoft Yahoo

As your all well aware by now, Yahoo turned and ran in the opposite direction from Microsoft’s bid to acquire them. Well it turns out Microsoft’s not done chasing just yet.

Microsoft have dropped the idea of buying the entire company, to now focus on specific areas the business. Throughout the months the offer was on the table, many speculated about exactly what Microsoft was after in placing their bid. It looks like we’ll be finding out very shortly.

If it is indeed Yahoo’s advertising market and other new media properties like Flickr, Buzz, Messenger, and the audiences that come with them, then my question is – what’s left at Yahoo if they go?

This story has a long way to go, but it’s interesting none the less.
