Microsoft Yahoo Inc's board believes Microsoft Corp's unsolicited bid of USD 44.6 billion to acquire Yahoo 'massively undervalues' the company and directors are set to reject the offer, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing an unnamed source. Microsoft's USD 31 per share offer fails to take account of the risks that a merger between the world's largest software maker and Yahoo would be rejected by regulators, the paper reported, citing 'a person familiar with the situation'. A spokeswoman for Yahoo, a diversified Internet media company, declined to comment on the proceedings of the company's board of directors.

Member since:

I always thought Yahoo had a better grasp on the social aspect of the Internet, while Google was better at the technological side, if you look at their acquisition history.

Thats so true.I have found yahoo chatrooms to have been extremely popular over the years and still is.I think that did well for the rest of their products since alot of chatters played yahoo games for example.

The Microsoft Msn chatrooms closed down and the google ones never seemed that popular to me.The general fear of my chat comrades is that with Microsoft aquisition their pastime will either come to an end or be severely limited.
