John Murrell at Good Morning Silicon Valley reports on Microsoft’s $31 a share offer for Yahoo.
You could watch it playing out like one of those â€œnature, red in tooth and clawâ€ documentaries. There was the wildebeest (played by Yahoo), slowed by a nagging groin injury, gradually starting to fall behind the herd. The vultures and hyenas (played by analysts and pundits) were starting to circle and salivate, respectively. Then, off in the tall grass thereâ€™s a stirring, then an explosion of dust as the lion (played with scenery-chewing enthusiasm by Microsoft) springs at its quarry and sinks its teeth into the back of its neck. Sensitive viewers may want to turn away.
