Microsoft may be looking to buy Yahoo, again Microsoft may be looking to buy Yahoo, again, just 4 years after its failed $44 billion bid for the company fell flat.
The software giant has signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with Yahoo that will allow it to poke into its finances.

Yahoo, since firing its CEO Carol Bartz in September, has been looking for a buyer or to sell off its most profitable assets, like its stake in the Alibaba Group.

The board of the company is expected to move forward with a plan in the next few weeks.

Although the NDA could signal Microsoft is an interested party, it could also just be the company protecting its search ad joint venture with Yahoo. Microsoft would like to keep that alliance, even if Yahoo is sold off.

ATT has to work with MS if this deal goes through.

It only makes sense that a crappy company will buy another crappy company.
