Apparently only Yahoo's board doesn't realize it's game-over time
On Friday, Steven A. Ballmer, Microsoft's chief executive, made his own phone call to Bostock, in what one person briefed on the matter said was a curt conversation.
Bostock asked Ballmer for more time to evaluate the offer, citing the complexity of separating Yahoo's search business from the rest of the business.
Ballmer refused, giving him 24 hours. "There is no more gas in the tank," he told Bostock, according to this person.
