Microsoft could seek allies for Yahoo move
Could Microsoft be preparing for another deal to finally get its hands on Yahoo's search business?
Microsoft is preparing another new bid for Yahoo's search business and has approached other media companies about joining it in a deal that would effectively lead to Yahoo's breakup, according to reports.
Microsoft has already held talks with Time Warner and News Corp among others, the Wall Street Journal quoted people familiar with the discussions as saying.
The talks are preliminary and unlikely to result in a deal with Yahoo, the reports said.
Microsoft was not immediately available for comment.
