Massucci's Take: Sun reminds IBM it's interested, is IBM listening?


It's a story that is playing out quite similarly to the failed Yahoo and Microsoft talks last year.

It's a story of a company with lots of money to invest (IBM, Microsoft), wanting to buy a company (Sun, Yahoo) that has seen its growth stall and appears to be in need of a buyer with lots of cash.

It's a story that may have a similar ending: Smaller company winds up chasing larger company after initially rejecting interest. In business there's rarely a fairy-tale happy ending.
