Is Oracle keeping Yahoo! and Microsoft apart?

I wonder if the real reason Microsoft and Yahoo! have been unable to pull off a merger is because it would complicate things at home for Yahoo! Chief Executive Terry Semel.

Semel has become neighbors with Oracle founder and Microsoft nemesis Larry Ellison, who is buying up land in Semel’s exclusive Malibu neighborhood, according to a great gossip piece in the NYT.

Among the tidbits: Ellison may be developing a spot in the neighborhood for a Nobu outpost with an indoor tidepool.

If Semel hooked up with Microsoft, he’d probably always get stuck at a table by the restrooms.
