A Microsoft, Yahoo Tie-Up?

"That would be a major departure for Microsoft, the software maker that is legendary for toiling on its own until it captures a new market. However, people familiar with the situation say that Microsoft has considered the idea of acquiring a stake in Yahoo, and that the two companies have discussed possible options over the course of the past year."

Somebody needs to straighten these guys out on the history of the two companies, both of which prefer to buy than to invent from scratch. I can just see the two project leads meeting for the first time and simultaneously saying: "So, your guys will develope all the code and my guys will handle all the interviews right?"
