Microsoft-Yahoo Update

How much does Yahoo not want to become part of Microsoft? So much that the company is apparently running toward Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. for safety.

Meanwhile, Yahoo's staying busy. CEO Jerry Yang is trying to explain to shareholders why his company -- their company, really -- rejected Microsoft's first overture. And Yahoo's still trying to run a business here, doing what companies do: buying other companies and laying people off.

Microsoft investors, some of them anyway, are now voicing their displeasure over Redmond's pursuit of Yahoo. But, the experts -- who, remember, know not much more than we do -- say that a Microsoft-Yahoo deal is still probable.
