Who's Going To Buy Yahoo!?
from the seems-familiar dept
Every few months or so when a news organization needs a random “we’re brilliant at predicting the future” sort of article, they come across the fact that Yahoo! is still an independent company and take a look at who might buy them. This one isn’t much different than any similar articles in the past, but it does discuss some of the reasons that a Microsoft or a Sony might want to buy Yahoo!. Bertelsmann, Vivendi, and Disney have all said many times in the past they have no interest, and that doesn’t seem likely to change any time soon. Of course, the article has no more insight other than “Yahoo is still alone” and “hmm, these companies have money and might be able to do something with Yahoo”, so I wouldn’t take it too seriously.
