Microsoft's Ballmer Starting Own Yahoo-Buying Rumor?
Paul Kedrosky submits: Steve Ballmer apparently wants people to think his Microsoft (MSFT) is buying Yahoo (YHOO). Here he is from an interview yesterday in New York with Charlie Rose:
Just a little non-eBay speculation to clear the pallet. Now back to our regularly schedule eBay bashing.
Rose: Are you in talks to acquire Yahoo?
Ballmer: If I were, i wouldn’t say anything, and if I weren’t, I wouldn’t say anything.
