Microsoft and Yahoo: Anyone else thinking this?

That Microsoft withdrawing its bid to acquire Yahoo and the subsequent devaluing of Yahoo's stock was a calculated move by Microsoft (I'm terribly tempted to suspect Steve Ballmer especially) to make Yahoo more vulnerable - and far cheaper - for purchase later on?

This might go down as the most classic maneuver that Microsoft has ever made, if that turns out to be true.

almost the kind of underhanded tactic you'd expect from the Redmond giant, huh?

Somehow I don't think that Ballmer threw any chairs across the boardroom this time, when Yahoo rebuffed Microsoft's initial offer.
