The dance continues…
Now that a pivotal advertising partnership with Google is off the table, Yahoo chief executive Jerry Yang is ready return to the bargaining table with Microsoft if the world's largest software maker remains interested in buying his embattled Internet company.
"To this day, I believe the best thing for Microsoft to do is to buy Yahoo," Yang said yesterday evening at the Web 2.0 summit in San Francisco.
Yahoo also looks more vulnerable than ever, having lost the Google partnership. The Sunnyvale-based company's shares closed yesterday at $13.92 - nearly 60 percent below Microsoft's last offer.
