Bizarre Love Rectangle: Microsoft, Yahoo, AOL and News Corp.
Oh, dear. Rumor -- and, remember, pretty much all of this stuff is rumor --
has it that Yahoo is looking
(ugh) to save it from Microsoft...while Redmond might be looking
to News Corp. (double ugh) to help woo (or just gobble up) Yahoo.
What a mess. And what a pairing that would be -- Microsoft and News Corp. (Rupert
Murdoch's company, famous in the U.S. for Fox News). Man, that little couple
coming together to put down "Internet pioneer" Yahoo would probably
be enough to make some Silicon Valley bloggers' heads explode.
