Google Interested in Breaking Up Microsoft & Yahoo Partnership
Google Chairman Eric Schmidt publicly stated that he’s interested in breaking up the Yahoo & Microsoft search relationship earlier this month. Forbes is reporting that Schmidt said he would love to have Yahoo switch to Google as its official search partner.
The two were in talks years ago about a potential partnership, but the plans were called off over fears that the government would file an antitrust suit against them. With former Google executive Marissa Mayer now serving as Yahoo‘s CEO, the potential for talks to resume may be more likely.
