MASTERS of the will-they won't-they relationship, Microsoft and Yahoo, have finally got it together on advertising and search engine operations, with a view to take on the might of Google.
Under this deal Yahoo is supposedly managing the ads side of the business and Microsoft will provide the necessary search engine platform. Rumours are that the two will share the revenues.
Microsoft has been chasing Yahoo around the corporate bedroom for years, but each time a consummation looked nigh, Yahoo proclaimed itself too expensive or just not interested and the deal fell apart.
The INQ asked the Vole's PR spinners for clarification about the deal. "Following your query regarding Yahoo, Microsoft does not comment on rumour or speculation. We have no comment to make at this time", said a spokesperson, shortly before issuing an invitation to a teleconference with Steve Ballmer and Yahoo's chief executive Carol Bartz.
We suppose a toast or something is in order. µ
