Over shadowed by the BofA takeover of ContryWide and Ben Bernanke's Fed report, speculation on the street is that MS is in talks to acquire Yahoo.

I hope NOT. I fear that the banned list from 1999 wil be imported into MSN too. Hey, Yahoo, things do change you know. Even bankruptcy records expire after 7-10 years.

"We think the reports in the Post are baseless as they were the previous two times, and in the unlikely event that Microsoft is contemplating acquiring Yahoo, we think the acquisition would be value-destructive and a particularly bad idea for both players."
