Icahn Letter to Yahoo Chairman Roy Bostock

Icahn to Yahoo: Nix the poison pill, now | Tech news blog – CNET News.com

From the letter:

“Until now I naively believed that self-destructive doomsday machines were fictional devices found only in James Bond movies. I never believed that anyone would actually create and activate one in real life. I guess I never knew about Yang and the Yahoo Board. In my opinion, it will be extremely difficult for Microsoft or other companies to trust, work with and negotiate with a company that would go to these lengths.”

Ouch.

  1. As soon as I read the letter, I knew that this would be the money quote. He’s reaching a little with his metaphor, but I’ll give the old guy credit for his snark. He still hasn’t started publishing on his blog yet, but he already has linkbait figured out.

    I am surprised that you give a man with such an obvious alternate agenda a voice. Or do you have one as well?
