SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates says
that "key decisions" following the company's withdrawal of a
takeover bid for Yahoo will be made by CEO Steve Ballmer.
Gates, on a brief trip to South Korea, was asked about the
software maker's plans after the Yahoo bid fell apart, including
whether Microsoft would pursue another deal of the same size
elsewhere.
Possibilities are seen including large Internet companies like
Time Warner's AOL and News Corp.'s MySpace and promising startups
like Facebook and LinkedIn. Microsoft already owns a 1.6 percent
stake in Facebook, the second-largest social network behind
MySpace.
