No one asks CFO Liddell about Yahoo bid, so he offers two cents

CNET is covering the Morgan Stanley event where Microsoft CFO Chris Liddell was speaking this morning. And, according to this report, no one — none of the analysts or any of the audience during a Q&A session — asked about Yahoo.

CNET’s Dawn Kawamoto wrote what I’m thinking:

“Hello … Microsoft is looking to lay down mega, mega, and, I say, MEGA bucks for Yahoo and no one at the investor/technology conference asked a single question about its bid.

“That didn’t stop Liddell from addressing the proverbial elephant in the room.

“Said Liddell: ‘No one asked me about Yahoo, which is interesting. It’s a small company we are looking to acquire, but the company has not yet formally responded to our offer…. We will continue to look at our options and that is something I am incredibly systematic about.'”
