Bizarre Love Rectangle: Microsoft, Yahoo, AOL and News Corp.

Oh, dear. Rumor -- and, remember, pretty much all of this stuff is rumor -- has it that Yahoo is looking to AOL (ugh) to save it from Microsoft...while Redmond might be looking to News Corp. (double ugh) to help woo (or just gobble up) Yahoo.

What a mess. And what a pairing that would be -- Microsoft and News Corp. (Rupert Murdoch's company, famous in the U.S. for Fox News). Man, that little couple coming together to put down "Internet pioneer" Yahoo would probably be enough to make some Silicon Valley bloggers' heads explode.
