This is a huge story, both in the name of the participants and in the money involved.
Microsoft has apparently made an offer to buy Yahoo. This would really set the stage for Microsoft to battle Google to the death.
Oh, and the price tag? Microsoft has apparently offered $44.6 BILLION ($44,600,000,000) US dollars worth of stock and cash.
A bold move by Microsoft...the world awaits Yahoo's response.
I really am about as surprised as I have been by technology news as I have been in a long time.
