Microsoft may take Yahoo for $50 Billion

Microsoft is reportedly rethinking a possible acquisition of Yahoo for an estimated Wall Street price tag of $50 billion. According to the NYPost, “Microsoft has intensified its pursuit of a deal with Yahoo!, asking the company to re-enter formal negotiations…”

Ever since Google grabbed DoubleClick in April, the pressure has increased. Mashable, tells us, Microsoft and Yahoo! “combined would command 27% of the search market against Google’s 65%.” Obviously a smart by on Microsoft’s part.
