Will Yahoo Bid Put AOL in Play?

With its potential to redraw the battle lines in the struggle for Internet domination, Microsoft’s $44.6 billion bid for Yahoo may end up putting other companies in play. High on the list of potential targets is AOL, which is the middle of a turnaround effort by its parent company, Time Warner.

AOL has long been the subject of takeover speculation, but that chatter is bound to become deafening with Friday’s move by Microsoft.

Shares of Time Warner were up as much as 7 percent in premarket trading, suggesting that investors may see AOL a much more enticing prize now.

    I don’t think that Google is that stupid.

    Google doesn’t fear MSFT/YHOO. In fact, they may be throwing parties at this very minute. A disfunctional company buys another increasingly disfunctinal company.

    AOL, going forward, brings no compelling technology or infrastructure to the table. They have a subscriber base and a website. Big deal.

Well, SAY something...
