Thursday Open Thread
Yahoo takeover battle takes dramatic twist - This is interesting and could have a reshaping effect on the internet's big powerplayers:
If Yahoo’s maneuvering raises the pressure for a higher bid, Microsoft reportedly may mount its counterattack with a surprising ally — Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., whose media empire already includes the Fox television networks, The Wall Street Journal and the popular online hangout MySpace.com. If Microsoft and News Corp. were successful in a joint bid, it would unite three of the Internet’s most popular Web sites — Yahoo, along with MySpace and MSN.com. The New York Times reported Microsoft’s discussions with News Corp. late Wednesday, citing people involved in the discussions.
Have a great Thursday!
