No Yahoo! for Microsoft, Carl Icahn Sued by Goldman Sachs

Posted in Finance, Google, Microsoft, Search at 4:42 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Carl Icahn

Summary: Microsoft-Yahoo! blocked and Carl Icahn proceeds to other immoral deeds

YAHOO! agreed to be turned into a zombie state of Microsoft after malicious intervention from Carl Icahn, but fortunately enough, the European regulators are among those instituting antitrust barriers [1, 2, 3, 4], so for the time being — based on two separate reports — the Microsoft-Yahoo! deal will not go through.

Yahoo! has told the Securities and Exchange Commission that it needs more time to sort out its search deal with Microsoft.

 

Yahoo admitted yesterday in an SEC filing, “The Letter Agreement specified that the parties would execute Definitive Agreements by October 27, 2009, but given the complex nature of the transaction, there remain some details to be finalized. The parties are working diligently on finalizing the agreements, have made good progress to date, and have agreed to execute the agreements as expeditiously as possible.”

The proxy fighter behind this has just left and we happen to find him dealing with some other white-collar crimes. As we said at the time when he left, Carl Icahn is also involved in one of the largest robberies of the 21st century, namely that of taxpayers (bankers versus taxpayers). Some days ago we wrote about Microsoft and Goldman Sachs and now we find this in the news:

Carl Icahn, CIT and Goldman Sachs

[...]

We have Carl Icahn offering to bail out CIT. We have Goldman Sachs suing Carl Icahn over a an entirely different matter. We have Goldman looking to profit from a CIT collapse. We have Mr. Icahn in a similar position, but in a more stealth kind of way.

We don’t really intend to address the crimes of banks, especially not in this Web site, but we gave many examples of news yesterday. As important as this issue is, it’s just too far off topic. Nonetheless, it is interesting to see the role of Icahn in there. Where there is smoke there is usually fire.

    Ironically, I’ve started seeing Yahoo ads on buses in Chicago that say “The Web is under new management. Y!ours”

    Wow, I think they should say:

    “Yahoo is under new management. Micro$ofts.”

  7. [Meme] Grabinski the Opportunity

    Reports of European Patents being invalidated (judges do not tolerate fake patents) have become so common that a kangaroo court becomes a matter of urgency for the EPO‘s Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos; will the EU and the EPO’s Administrative Council go along with it, helping to cover up more than a decade of profound corruption?

    2 pension providers are looking into Sirius ‘Open Source’, a company that defrauded its own staff; stay tuned as there’s lots more to come. Is this good representation for “Open Source”? From a company that had many high-profile clients in the public sector?

  17. Windows Falls to 16% Market Share in India (It was 97% in 2009), Microsoft Layoffs Reach India Too

    This month’s picture from the world’s most populous nation does not look good for Microsoft (it looks good for GNU/Linux); anonymous rumour mills online say that Microsoft isn’t moving to India but is actually firing staff based in India, so it’s a case of shrinking, not offshoring. When even low-paid (much lower salaries) staff is discarded it means things are very gloomy.

  22. Many More Microsoft Layoffs Later Today

    Yesterday we shared rumours about Microsoft layoffs being planned for later today (there were 3 waves of layoffs so far this year). There are several more people here who say the same. How much noise will Microsoft make in the “media” in order to distract? Will the chaffbot "ChatGPT" help create enough chaff?

    The chief UPC ‘judge’ is basically seeking to break the law (and violate constitutions, conventions etc.) to start a kangaroo court while dodging real courts, just like Vladimir Putin does



  25. [Meme] The Meme That Team UPC (the Collusion to Break the European Laws, for Profit) Threats to Sue Us For

    António Campinos and Team UPC are intimidating people who simply point out that the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is illegal and Klaus Grabinksi, shown above, strives to head a de facto kangaroo court in violation of constitutions and conventions (the UK does not and cannot ratify; Ireland hasn’t even held a referendum on the matter)



  26. Microsoft is Sacking People Every Month This Year, Even Managers (While Sponsored Media Produces Endless Chatbot Chaff)

    Lots of Microsoft layoffs lately and so-called ‘journalists’ aren’t reporting these; they’re too busy running sponsored puff pieces for Microsoft, usually fluff along the “hey hi” (AI) theme



  27. 3 Months Late Sirius 'Open Source' Finally Deletes Us From the Fraudulent 'Meet the Team' Page (But Still Lists Many People Who Left Years Ago!)

    Amid fraud investigations the management of Sirius ‘Open Source’ finally removed our names from its “Meet the Team” page (months late); but it left in the page about half a dozen people who left the company years ago, so it’s just lying to its clients about the current situation



  28. Amid Fraud at Sirius 'Open Source' CEO Deletes His Recent (This Month) Past With the Company

    Not only did the Sirius ‘Open Source’ CEO purge all mentions of Sirius from his Microsoft LinkedIn account; he’s racing against the clock as crimes quickly become a legal liability

  30. Rumours of More Microsoft Layoffs Tomorrow (Including Managers!), Probably Azure Again (Many Azure Layoffs Every Year Since 2020)

    Amazon is laying off AWS staff and Microsoft has been laying off Azure staff for 3 years already, including this year, so it seems like the “clown computing” bubble is finally bursting
