That's what the Wall Street Journal seems to think anyway. I can't help but be a little cynical about this, what with their would-be deal with Yahoo! hardly cold in its grave.
The cold-hearted journalist in me tends to see conspiracy theories wherever it looks, so please forgive me if I indulge in one right now. But wouldn't it be odd, after Microsoft had been trying to pressurise Yahoo! into a snap decision last week, if they were actually using another company just to apply a little pressure.
Surely that wouldn't happen. Not really..?
