It may be a ploy by ballmer

Well wait long enough and iCahns parasites will drive the price down far enough to make it an irresistible bargain basement.

"Microsoft shares are down 45 per cent on the year"

To support your conspiracy theory, Ballmer would have to see some value in Yahoo. What could that be?

Ballmer has a Google obsession and will try to beat Google if he can. At the start of the year MS + yahoo were bigger than Google in search and therefore an aquisition would give him an opportunity to yell: search, search, search...

Gibraltar rock??

If he means "The Rock of Gibraltar"...Ain't that covered with monkeys? Apt.

Alternatively, does he mean a stick of rock with the word "Bognor" removed, and "Ballmer" replacing it?? (Brits will understand. Sorry about the rest of the third world)
