New Rumors Surface On Microsoft Buying Yahoo After Ballmer-Rose Interview
In that interview, Rose questions Ballmer of the Yahoo/Microsoft merger rumors from earlier this year. The new revived question is if Microsoft is still interested in a Yahoo acquisition.
When Rose asked Ballmer, “Why don’t we buy Yahoo?,” Ballmer corrected Rose by saying Microsoft “didn’t” purchase the company.
The new rumors do not lead to any more evidence of a possible Yahoo buyout but does lead to some more evidence supporting past rumors.
