What I Think

Archive for May 2008

I have limited (almost no) internet connectivity here. my vacation ends on 10th june and regular posting will start from 12th june. My blog stats for last month were 6008 and this month till now only 415 because of no updates. This makes a total of 7445 till now. The stats hopefully increase after I start updating again. I written this post from my N70, but unfortunately tech cannot be written from N70. Meanwhile keep checking my twitter updates on the right. Thank you.

Microsoft has finally given up Yahoo after pursuing it for three months. Yahoo put up such a good fight that Microsoft had to accept defeat.

Microsoft:

“We continue to believe that our proposed acquisition made sense for Microsoft, Yahoo! and the market as a whole. Our goal in pursuing a combination with Yahoo! was to provide greater choice and innovation in the marketplace and create real value for our respective stockholders and employees,” said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer of Microsoft.

“Despite our best efforts, including raising our bid by roughly $5 billion, Yahoo! has not moved toward accepting our offer. After careful consideration, we believe the economics demanded by Yahoo! do not make sense for us, and it is in the best interests of Microsoft stockholders, employees and other stakeholders to withdraw our proposal,” said Ballmer.

“We have a talented team in place and a compelling plan to grow our business through innovative new services and strategic transactions with other business partners. While Yahoo! would have accelerated our strategy, I am confident that we can continue to move forward toward our goals,” Ballmer said.

“We are investing heavily in new tools and Web experiences, we have dramatically improved our search performance and advertiser satisfaction, and we will continue to build our scale through organic growth and partnerships,” said Kevin Johnson, Microsoft president for platforms and services.
