Google has ~$43 billion in cash and short-term investments. I'd rather see them buy Yahoo! than something more important and strategic. Perhaps it is just a ploy to get MS into making a bad investment.
Yahoo! should stay independent. Shareholders should back-off (I own about 400 shares of Yahoo! and I'm upside down about $3,600). Why does Yahoo need to sell? They have ~$2.1 billion in cash and short-term investments. About 20% of the revenue drops to profit. So why sell?
