Google may quit Yahoo venture - The Boston Globe

Plausible…

Google may have thwarted an acquisition of Yahoo by Microsoft simply by tying up the company in a lengthy Justice Department review, said Rebecca Arbogast, an analyst for Stifel Nicolaus & Co. in Washington.

"This kept Yahoo out of the arms of Microsoft for a good long time," Arbogast said. "That is a very good, practical outcome from [Google's] point of view. Given further shrinking and problems at Yahoo, it could be that they kept Yahoo out of Microsoft's arms forever."
