If the deal comes in above $44 billion, this could be the biggest tech deal ever, topping the JDS Uniphase's $41 billion acquisition of SDL in 2000. It's also way bigger than Hewlett-Packard's $23.5 billion acquisition of Compaq in 2001.
Microsoft's proposed acquisition of Yahoo would marry the world's biggest software maker with a leading Internet media company, shaking up the online market.
I've gotten ahold of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's internal memo he emailed to the troops this morning about his plans to spend $45 billion in a hostile bid for struggling search stalwart Yahoo. (Thanks for sending. You know who you are!)
Let the campaigning begin: Microsoft hosted a conference call with the Street and media this morning to talk over its $45 billion dollar hostile bid for Yahoo, making its case not just to Microsoft and Yahoo investors, but to Yahoo employees who might feel tempted to make a bee-line for the exits.
Microsoft's take-out play for Yahoo is a stunning move by the world's largest software maker, even though rumors of a deal have been swirling for the better part of a year.

Yahoo's after-market reaction to the company's earnings news says it all: Yahoo down 8 percent and you gotta wonder just how bad this news is going to get before it gets any better. IF it gets any better. Stunning for a company that says today it enjoys 2 BILLION page views A MONTH in the U.S. alone.
Yahoo Inc (YHOO) reported a drop in quarterly profit on Tuesday and investors bid the Dow higher again. What's the word on the Street.
