Yahoo! won't rush into Microsoft deal


Speaking of the Microsoft-Yahoo! deal, Yahoo! just said that it’s gonna take its sweet time deciding whether or not to accept the unsolicited offer—”quite a bit of time,” being the exact phrasing. How independent the company would remain post-acsuisition is also a matter of contention.

Yahoo! also said it’d consider offers from other companies, like News Corp.

This story won’t be going away any time soon. Just a heads up.
