Because allowing Microsoft to buy Yahoo! *and* AOL next year would apparently be so much better than just letting the company consume Yahoo! this year, there is talk of Yahoo! seeking another shot at merging with AOL.
It said Yahoo and AOL had previously tried to join forces, but were unable to agree on the price of a deal.
I’m guessing both companies appeared stronger at previous talks than this time around. Ã‚Â But I’m not sure how a generally successful company like Yahoo! merging with a downward trending company like AOL will save Yahoo!, but I guess that’s why I’m not a multi-billionaire industry executive (NOTE: I also called the iPhone’s popularity wrong – further proof that I should remain a tech peon).
