Microsoft release today is just another attempt to pour more gas on the Jerry Yang bonfire. Microsoft is betting that Yahoo shareholders will elect a friendly board or force internal war that will end up with Jerry losing his job.
Jerry has been under pressure for his job as CEO and the recent ‘heat’ will come not from Microsoft but from Icahn who is mounting a campaign to have a new board and ultimately a new CEO who will do the deal.
Given the liquidy problems of the market Icahn this is all about money. I’m for Yahoo to remain and compete.
Yang get some fire in the belly and compete will you.
