Microsoft willing to get hostile with its Yahoo! takeover


I love how other, unnamed blogs characterize Microsoft’s threat to pursue a hostile takeover of Yahoo! as “mean” or “oh man, they’re playing hardball now, watch out!” Like, if a company’s shareholders want a takeover to occur, but the board doesn’t, and the bid goes though, it’s a hostile takeover. That’s it. It’s not like Ballmer is running into Yahoo! HQ and taking the building over by force.

But, we’re not really concerned with financials here, so, at the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter. Just a peculiar thing I noticed while listening to some random band I found on and planning the rest of my day.
