Microsoft and Yahoo

Filed under: Internet; Author: Les Bain; Posted: February 10, 2008 at 11:34 pm;

Microsoft made an offer to buy Yahoo.  One part of the conversation is to try and identify other players who might buy Yahoo.  Google is usually mentioned, with the quick disclaimer that it would not work.

There are other Computer and Information Technology companies that have more revenues than Microsoft.  Two of them are Hewlett Packard and IBM.  It is a sign of the times that an Information Technology decision is being discussed with IBM not being a part of the conversation.

I know there is a distinction between Information Technology companies and Internet companies, but Microsoft and IBM both have revenues from both.

Twenty years ago, IBM would have been a part of the conversation.
