Microsoft-Yahoo! - Yahoo! Board Reportedly Set To Convene Today

Outside advisors have been telling Yahoo! to capitulate and take the Microsoft deal.

The Yahoo! Board is supposed to convene today to thrash out whether or not to accept Microsoft's $44.6 billion acquisition offer, try to get Microsoft to sweeten the pot, or resist and hammer out an outsourcing deal with Google, according to TechCrunch. Based on what the blog (http://www.techcrunch.com/ ) has heard from unidentified sources, Yahoo!'s outside advisors have been telling it to capitulate and take the Microsoft deal.

However, it says, a bunch of resistant Yahoo! senior executives backing the Google option will state their case to the board.
