Yahoo Pressing Ahead As If Microsoft Didn't Exist

Welcome to an abbreviated version of RCPU: We're in the midst of a lot of other stuff, including an article for that pesky print publication, so, for once, we're employing an economy of words. And we're in a linguistic recession right now.

So while we know that partners don't seem overly interested in a potential Microsoft-Yahoo deal (and, really, we're not, either), we did find it interesting that Yahoo has launched a spate of new initiatives even as Microsoft continues to breathe down its neck. Could these be the last acts of an independent Yahoo? Frankly, it seems likely, but as we've said before, nobody knows. For now, though, it passes for news.
