As Conglomerates Go

Microsoft is like the spoiled rich kid whose sleep is haunted by visions of being bigger and more powerful than Google. With each new acquisition Google makes, Microsoft goes to bat with acquisition efforts of their own. In this article from THE AGE, seems Microsoft is having another go at acquiring Yahoo. From that article, "The New York Post reported on Friday that Microsoft has asked Yahoo to enter formal negotiations for an acquisition that could be worth $US50 billion ($60.8 billion). Yahoo's market capitalisation was about $US38 billion yesterday." Just give away more free stuff, Microsoft! :)
