An excerpt, from D blogger John Paczkowski’s report: “If there’s boatloads of money and the right technology involved would be do a deal, sure,” says Bartz. “It’s that simple.” So Yahoo is willing to sell search if the money is right and the technology is there? Bartz: “Yes.” Then a moment later … “They’d have to have biiiiig boatloads of money, though.” Are talks between the two companies still going on. Bartz says a little bit. So what’s a boatload, at a company that turned down Steve Ballmer’s $44.6 billion offer last year? How about $3.75 billion, plus a new Ford Fusion? Comments | Topics: Microsoft, yahoo, Yahoo!
