Microsoft’s lack of experience in “buying big things” is a major reason the company didn’t seal its buyout of Yahoo, media mogul Rupert Murdoch tells CNET, who adds he was “mystified” at the lack of a deal. An alliance between Yahoo and Google—"just gushing money"—still seems possible, the News Corp. CEO said, barring a regulatory kibosh.
Market leader Google, Murdoch gushed yesterday at an industry conference, has the "best search engine by far. They are just going on, getting bigger and bigger. … You can see why Microsoft is worried."
