Microsoft | Microsoft-Yahoo search-engine deal looks likely | Seattle Times Newspaper

Interesting times

After 18 months of playing footsie, Microsoft and Yahoo may finally be ready to announce a deal as early as today that would unite parts of the two companies.

It may not be the blockbuster merger that Microsoft wanted 18 months ago, but it likely involves a partnership that would allow the two companies to creep closer to search-engine giant Google.

Reports Tuesday from Advertising Age and The Wall Street Journal both say a search advertising and technology deal could be announced as early as today.

Wow! Finally Microsoft has reached a deal Yahoo for an internet search partnership. Will the newly announced deal between giants Microsoft and Yahoo be a good thing? Got to wait and see. But atleast Microsoft and Yahoo deal is straightforward and not complex at all and ofcourse, the negotiation talks have been going for long. I was just curious to know all the past negotiations between Microsoft and Yahoo so collected all the articles and links (more than 200) related to the current merger and the previous events or negotiations between Microsoft and Yahoo.
