  1. Folks: A deal will happen. Not the deal Mr. Post proposes, but Yahoo will sell it's search business eventually, outright, to MSFT. This is the no-brainer of the century. Yahoo will clean up it's act under Bartz's leadership. Search will be packaged and sold for $24-$26 (just a guess). Most likely next Fall. You can bet that she and Ballmer are in regular contact.

  2. True – enough of this SAME old…. I do believe though that MSFT is STILL keen on some search deal (not a merger etc etc) but a partnership that benefits both…

    Guys – it is a survival question, isn;t it???

    Here we go again…
    Old habits die hard. Stop trying to bump YHOO stock.

    What is an "Analyst" doing recommending a merger, AND why does Mr. Post think that he knows what is best for MSFT or YHOO for that matter.

    How many times have they said "Not Interested in Merger" of any kind?,

    Is this a slow news day? well! why continue reporting on this Crap?
