Yahoo - stock options?
Maybe Jerry can grant stock options to all the employees that only vest when the company gets taken over. Like the equivalent of a years salary or some such. Then when Microsoft tries this again, and Yahoo says "YES", every employee is suddenly retired, and rides off into the sunset. It will leave Stevey boy the Balder with nothing more than an empty shell. Of course that is what he deserves, but I assume that is another story.
Me? If this happens, I'm off to using another search/portal company. Bye Bye!
