Yahoo Kicked to the Curb

So Microsoft has apparently moved on from its fling earlier this year with Yahoo. The same week that Google kicked Yahoo to the curb, Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer said that his company would not be making any new bids for the struggling internet search engine. Yahoo rebuked a takeover attempt by Microsoft earlier this year, but Yahoo came back to Microsoft after antitrust laws scared Google away. "To this day, I would say that the best thing for Microsoft to do is to buy Yahoo," said Yahoo's cofounder. Microsoft's refusal to bite places Yahoo, says the Financial Times, at a "strategic dead-end."
