As the story goes, Microsoft (which is considered to be the biggest corporation in the Information Technology arena) gives a taste of what it plans for Yahoo (one of the biggest and most widely used search engines on earth) on what it’s plans are for this year. But glad as they should be, they say no for they say the offer the company (Microsoft) is bidding for their company is too low. Yes, news has reached the internet that the investors/shareholders of Yahoo have turned down the offer of the software giant well before it has formally been formalized as a true and intentional act.
There has been speculation on the move but Microsoft has again expresses it’s willingness to negotiate and talk with these so-called investors on their stand not to sell. Microsoft has taken this stand way back in the early days of the company when the budding company released Windows as their own gamble in the upcoming personal computer market software boom. With rumors or facts circulating within the industry that the said operating systems which we all know as Windows, was derived from initial work in conjunction with IBM in their OS-Warp series of operating systems which never managed to beat the one released by Microsoft for it beat the industry giant at the initial punch. Microsoft went on to take what it wanted (companies and products) and settled out of court any complainants ending with ownership of either the product or the company itself that made the said products. The conquer and take stance has been known to many in the early days of the Personal computer but has become more and more obscure in today’s world of MP3 players and multi function cellular phones.
The rejection of an industry giant for the offer of Microsoft might provide insight on the company’s future allowing diversity and equal opportunity with all those who partake in the battle that is business. With the economy struggling, the US is said to be already in recession even as the federal government tries to avert such which might be too late and too much out of control. Microsoft, like all US-based companies would have to slow down or trim down it’s ranks to be able to survive this coming economic ‘recession’ which is beginning to take firm hold of the great American Nation.
