Forty ‘no comments’ from Yahoos
Now that Microsoft Corp has withdrawn its bid for Yahoo Inc, one of the questions on the minds of many (MediaFile included) is what’s the attitude like at the Web company’s leafy Sunnyvale, California headquarters. Elation? Disappointment? Anger? Frustration? Relief? Fear? Pride? Confusion?
So I made the drive to the Yahoo campus today to find out. Security at the main gate turned me away, but I managed to take cover behind a Yahoo sign and ask employees as they walked by if they would mind talking about the whole Microsoft thing.
Here’s what I got: No thank you, politely, from 40 people.
While I promised anonymity, Yahoos clearly aren’t in the mood to talk about their feelings publicly. At least not to a reporter at the company’s campus. Perhaps some of you out there would rather drop us a comment? Feel free. Fire away. Let us know how you feel.
After all, three months ago you didn’t shy from talking about the “big octopus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”
