Ballmer Wants Yahoo Search… Here We Go Again

The on again off again dance of Microsoft and Yahoo seems to be on again. According to this AP story, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer seems to be interested in Yahoo search:

“I think a search deal makes great sense for Microsoft, and Yahoo,” Ballmer said in an interview published in the online edition of The Wall Street Journal. “I think I’ve been very open about that.”

“I think good ideas are usually better done quickly than slowly, so it would probably be better for both us, and certainly for Yahoo, if we were to do it sooner than later,” he said.

“But at the end of the day, that would have be something Yahoo would be as interested in as I have expressed our interest.”

So, it sounds like the ball is in Yahoo’s court. Seeing as Jerry Yang is out of the way, perhaps they can actually get a deal done this time?
