Microhoo An Alternate History Tale of the Microsoft-Yahoo Merger

Can you believe its already been a year on Sunday Feb. 1 since Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told the world that MS wanted to buy Yahoo? CNET had some fun gazing through the looking glass of alternate history and came up with a chain of events that are interesting, especially if youre a what if? kind of person like I am.

But what if Yang had gotten up on the other side of the bed one day a year ago and led his company to accept the offer? It's impossible to know what would have happened, of course. ...So let's suppose that Yahoo agreed to Microsoft's acquisition offer after bargaining Microsoft up a notch on the price tag to, say, $31 per share from the original $29.
