Yahoo is still the largest web portal.
is the search engine for Yahoo.

It was serious news.... only 3 years ago.
MS made an offer for $33 per share at the time and Yang said no. Since then Yahoo shares dropped and never recovered from the $10-15 range. Yang was fired as CEO. Yahoo shares just jumped 3% on this rumor.
