Yahoo lukewarm on Microsoft bid

50°
315w ago - Internet search engine Yahoo says it is "not opposed" to Microsoft's takeover bid, but wants a better price.

The letter from Yahoo's board was a swift response to a deadline issued at the weekend by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for Yahoo to agree to the deal.

Microsoft warned if the deal was not accepted by 26 April, it would mount a hostile takeover at a lower price.

The software giant made an unsolicited $44.6bn (£22.3bn) takeover offer for Yahoo on 31 January.

But Yahoo rejected the deal, saying it substantially underrated the company's value and prospects.

'Counterproductive'

"We have continued to make clear that we are not opposed to a transaction with Microsoft if it is in the best interests of our stockholders," the letter said.

"Our position is simply that any transaction must be at a value that fully reflects the value of Yahoo, including any strategic benefits to Microsoft, and on terms that provide certainty to our stockholders."

In the letter, Yahoo said the threat to begin a hostile takeover was "counter-productive".

Yahoo has been seeking links with other media and internet firms that would help it retain its independence.

PS3 SIXAXIS Controller Officially Discontinued

350°
315w ago - In a not-so-surprising statement, a Sony representative confirmed today that SIXAXIS controller will officially be on its way out with the release of the force-feedback enabled DualShock 3 later this month.

Sixaxis will no longer be offered after it's completely sold through at retail (likely by the summer timeframe).

So if you absolutely don't care about rumble support, take this as a cue to stay on the lookout for clearance deals on the old SIXAXIS controller.
 

Official details of the new CoD4 Map Pack!

316w ago - Below are the latest official details on the CoD4 map pack:

Since details on the maps have been pretty scattered throughout the internet, I thought I'd give you guys a comprehensive breakdown of each map in the upcoming Variety Map Pack for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare along with some suggestions on gametypes, classes, and a few more screenshots to look over; all in one location.

For those of you who don't know, these maps will be hitting in April and will be 800 MS Points (same pricing for PSN). Along with the map pack will be a few minor changes to the game, including a tweak to Clan Tags to re-allow special characters.

Individual DLC Map Descriptions:

Broadcast
Its size and alternating routes make "Broadcast" great for large team games. A large, multi-story television station with plenty of window vantage points creates the perfect setting for floor-to-floor combat.

The station is surrounded by extensive outdoor areas consisting of a long parking lot, surrounding buildings with sniping hiding spots and side-rooftop access to the top and bottom floors of the television station.

Creek
A large wide open village in the woods, "Creek" consists of heavy foliage, great for sniper cover: a deep ravine offers an excellent vantage point...
