    Maybe Microsoft could give away a few HD DVD discs with each MS share? Just to sweeten the deal a little you know?

    When the original offer was made, it was done so at a vast premium over the price of yahoo shares just before the deal was announced. All that is happening now is that the market is correcting itself for the discrepancy. The original offer over valued yahoo anyway by 62%.

    So the offer has not been reduced as no way in a million years were microsoft or yahoo's shares going to remain static during this time. Yahoo shareholders are the winners by far here.

    Of course they would accept... if they didn't the share value would go right down (yahoo shares that is).

    I'd much rather Microsoft spend their time and money improving their operating systems! Nevermind trying to take over the Internet as well...

    Microsoft is Crazy

    I agree. I wish Microsoft didn't have its mind set on competing with Google...but oh well. I wrote a bit more on this subject on my blog if anyone's interested...

    Sounds like the offer may die, and MS shareholders don't seem to have much stomach for upping the ante. I am cautionsly hopeful this will soon blow over.

    Maybe MS will buy AOL and all the evil people can be in one place.
