Microsoft's Ballmer Still Sees Tie-Up Opportunity With Yahoo [uk.reuters.com]
Microsoft Corp CEO Steve Ballmer said he sees opportunities to work with Yahoo Inc to create a "better search product" but would not comment on discussions that the two may be engaged in.
Ballmer's trip to the San Francisco Bay area has prompted speculation he might be meeting with Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz about a potential deal.

Ballmer, asked about Microsoft's unsuccessful bid to buy Yahoo last year, said he still thought a tie-up would have been "valuable." He was speaking to students at Stanford University on Wednesday.

This story just won't die, will it? ;)

It sounds like there will eventually be some cooperation on some level with these two. Cooperation might be better than a take-over at this point anyway.
