By now, most of you have probably heard the other big acquisition news story of the day. Microsoft has just announced another bid to buy Yahoo. And this time, they are hinting (if not threatening) to go directly to the stockholders, and simply buy the stock, if Yahoo management seems disinclined to accede to the buyout. The New York Times has an interesting analysis piece, and I’m sure it’s already all over the web and the blogosphere.

Today, Yahoo officially rejected Microsoft’s offer, saying it undervalued the company. Here’s a link to the NYT story, which analyzes possible future developments, and also provides a little background on the man at Microsoft who is spear-heading the effort: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/11/technology/11cnd-yahoo.html?_r=1&ref=business&oref=slogin
