Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo. Holy ****. From CNN (stock tickers removed):

Microsoft Corp. proposed Friday to the board of Yahoo Inc. to acquire all the outstanding common shares of Yahoo for $31 a share, representing a total equity value of about $44.6 billion.

Ionut Alex. Chitu in the comments reminds us that Microsoft offers to Yahoo have been rebuffed before, though. Peter Dawson wonders if the US Securities and Exchange Commission would pass such a deal; it could be a monopoly, Peter says. Microsoft and Yahoo are arguably Google’s two biggest competitors – having them merge might pose an even bigger threat to Google.
