Exclusive: Microsoft considers bidding for Yahoo [reuters.com]

Microsoft Corp is considering a bid for Yahoo Inc, resurfacing as a potential buyer after a bitter and unsuccessful fight to take over the Internet company in 2008, sources close to the situation said on Wednesday.

Microsoft joins a host of other companies looking at Yahoo, which has a market value of about $20 billion and is readying financial pitch books for potential buyers, they said.

Those companies include buyout shops Providence Equity Partners, Hellman & Friedman and Silver Lake Partners, as well as Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba and Russian technology investment firm DST Global, the sources said.

Totally agree! Imagine the culture shock. Maybe they'll do it with Alibaba for tax purposes and to unload what MS doesn't want.

Let's hope that Amazon and Apple start their own search engines, now that Yahoo went out.
