Guess Yahoo does not want to partner with anyone these days... well apart from their biggest competitor Google. The Wall Street Journal blog, All Things D, just posted an entry by Kara Swisher, that details the grumblings of some top Yahoo managers overheard at a luncheon CEO Jerry Yang was having with his SVPs and others.
Swisher overheard them "talking about the unhappiness they felt over the possible deal Yang was concocting with AOL, as an alternate to the unsolicited bid made by Microsoft."
Am sure Jerry will not be pleased by this story, considering he had the AOL idea. Will more senior staff be leaving Yahoo if this partnership goes forward? We wsill have to wait and see.
