Truth be told, it was Yahoo who was greedy in this matter. They figured that Microsoft had deep pockets and they would shake them down for every penny. Microsoft's bid was already generous and they added yet another 5 billion but that was still not enough for Yahoo. Yahoo would have been happy to sell out if Microsoft gave in and over paid them for their company. I don't think Yahoo expected Microsoft to draw the line but they had to or every future company approached for merger would milk them just like Yahoo tried to do.
