Time to sell a few 100 million extra Vista copies!

Software giant offers $31 a share - a 62% premium - in deal that could reorder online ad market. Microsoft's Ballmer: 'Major milestone.'

Microsoft Corp. made an unsolicited $44.6 billion cash and stock bid for Yahoo on Friday, a deal that could shake up the competitive and lucrative market for online advertising.

The deal would pay Yahoo shareholders $31 a share, which represents a 62% premium from where Yahoo stock closed on Thursday.

Yahoo is still around? Just because MS buys them that will make them popular? Who Yahoos something?

To me, the only thing Yahoo is good for these days is their Widget engine, Flickr and the occasional game of Texas Hold'em.

Microhoo! will undoubtedly screw these things up too.
