    • talbano: so mad - if this happens tomorrow, I wanted to buy more. I don't MSFT is going to just let this go

    • Michael Stuart: Doubt it will happen tomorrow. http://reut.rs/pXzNSQ, still time!

    • John Rayhall: Did they get Jerry Yang and the rest of them on board with selling Yahoo this this time?
      10/19/11
    • Michael Stuart: Not yet according to serial "cheerio-pisser" allthingsD: http://dthin.gs/qtTzpo/

    • John Rayhall: Lol thanks. Man there has to be someone that can turn Yahoo around that franchise is valuable no matter what.

    • Michael Stuart: I agree John, It's too schizophrenic right now, break it up, sell off component pieces, core business could do well with good direction.

    • Michael Stuart: AAPL should remind everyone that no company is dead until they file the BK paperwork!
      10/19/11
    • John Rayhall: True people forget how close Apple was to death. Kids these days prob have no idea about the dark days of Apple.

    • John Rayhall: Why don't they just overpay for some Google employees lol JK

    • talbano: i personally don't use Yahoo but it def has value - lots of people go to it for info
      10/19/11
    • John Rayhall: I use Yahoo for Yahoo finance I use Google for everything else.
      10/19/11
    • talbano: IMO - I don't think MSFT will just let this walk and will pay 20 for it. It is still a lot cheaper than the 33 they offered 3 yrs ago

    • John Rayhall: ? why do they need a consortium to buy YHOO they have 51 Billion in cash.
      10/19/11
    • talbano: i think they only want certain parts
      10/19/11
    • campusglass: How soon you think this is happening tal?
      10/19/11
    • John Rayhall: Is Yahoo the best fit to make MSFT more exciting? Maybe a CRM would be better?
      10/19/11
    • Michael Stuart: YHOO and MSFT already have relationship, not sure if CRM does...
      10/19/11
    • John Rayhall: Okay makes sense but I think MSFT needs new leadership as well.
      10/19/11
    • Michael Stuart: Mkt. does too, I love how MSFT rallies every time a rumor that Ballmer is leaving pops up.
      10/19/11
    • John Rayhall: He's only 55 too could be there for awhile. I wish he would give me 1% of his net worth lol.
      10/19/11
    • Michael Stuart: Me too!
      10/19/11
    • talbano: MSFT need to split - Enterprise / Gaming/social That would be the smart move
      10/19/11
    • John Rayhall: Tina for MSFT CEO! I'll take 0.5% Michael and you can have the other 0.5% I'm not greedy.
      10/19/11
    • Michael Stuart: I'm off to bed, tal, if you're still interested I'll put up how I'm going to play YHOO tomorrow.
      10/19/11
    • campusglass: IM INTERESTED
      10/19/11
    • John Rayhall: Have a great night, let me know as well :)
      10/19/11
    • talbano: sweet dreams let me know your play
      10/19/11
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: I don't think YHOO is fixable! Somebody ask Venerability about the cyber bots that infected YHOO!
      10/19/11
    • Mr. Massive: More room on yhoo bandwagon if ppl want to join
      10/20/11
    • Hillbilly Stock Star: I think Mr. Softee needs to do a special dividend imo!
      10/20/11
    • John Rayhall: They did one last 6 years ago for 3 bucks I think. They should do one again for sure.
