I just saw this online. Its from Michael Arrington at Techcrunch. I have included a section of this article.
We?ve got multiple sources at both Yahoo and Microsoft telling us that official talks are back on between the two companies. But we?re hearing something different than CNET – the talks are about a full buyout again, not a sweetened search-only deal.
The information we have is thin, but what one source is saying that Microsoft is talking a price lower than the $33 they were offering when the talks disintegrated in May. Given Yahoo?s recent share price (it?s below $21 today), and the fact that just about everyone other than their board and top execs are publicly screaming for a deal, I?m not surprised.
Microsoft official comment is ?no comment,? which actually contains more information than it appears to. For well over a month, Microsoft has officially been saying they?re no longer interested in Yahoo. They didn?t say that today.

Anything that can challange google is important to the future of Information Technology I am a big fan of Yahoo. I use the site quite a bit, especially yahoo messenger. I have a number of friends around the world I keep in touch with.
