Microsoft Offers $44.6B for Yahoo! No Joke.

ACHTUNG, ACHTUNG! This morning, Microsoft made an unsolicited bid for Yahoo! for $44.6 billion, making it, by far, the largest acquisition Microsoft has attempted in its history. Reading the headlines, my first thought was, ‘Is it April Fool’s already?’. This is the real deal.

  1. ummm….I didn’t know Yahoo still existed. Pretty sure Google handed it to Yahoo on a platinum platter years ago…in almost every way.

    P.S – I believe you mean: Achtung, Achtung! (sorry had to:P)

  2. Haha, Yahoo actually has close to 1/4 of the search engine market in the US, far more than Microsoft, at less than 10%.

    And yes, I did mean Achtung… My German was never very good, unlike yours. 😉
