Microsoft May Make Another Run At Yahoo!

Article below saying that Microsoft may take another stab at buying Yahoo, but this time with a consortium of investors.  I think that would be a smart move, as I would hate to see them buy the whole damn thing.  You buy with a consortium and you can then form alliances to harness the value in Yahoo's intellectual properties, without actually footing the whole damn bill for the acquisition.  Cheers!

I'm guessing that Alibaba will probably try to buy itself out of YHOO if it can and leave what's left to the others...

 

Looks like I was guessing right:

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. has talked with Singapore’s Temasek Holdings Pte about providing financing to buy the 40 percent stake in itself held by Yahoo! Inc., according to people familiar with the matter.

A major concern I have with MSFT is their acquisitions, I just don't see most of them adding value.  Maybe I'm missing something but it appears to me that they focus on competing with google too much, and not enough on their dominate software business.
