Yahoo and Microsoft are in the news again.

In May it came out that the two were discussing just selling SOME of Yahoo! to the Redmond-based software giant.

This week Yahoo announced a host of new ad deals in an effort to appease all the stockholders who wanted to them to give in and give it up to Megasoft (short-sighted anyone?), but admitted they are still negotiating with The Software Company Who Shall Not Be Named.

Yahoo! management and the disgruntled moneygrubbers stockholders will have their big showdown at the just announced August 1, 2008 annual shareholders meeting.

As someone who uses way more Yahoo than she wants to admit, and who does NOT want to use anymore of that other company’s software than she has to, I’ll be keeping an eye on this.
