Supposedly employees at Yahoo are said to have just received an internal memo time-stamped 8:00 PST, telling them to expect a "major and historical announcement" some time after 2 PM PST. From the mailbag: "People are saying that Yang has agreed to leave his post effective today and that YHOO is again in late-stage talks to sell the whole company to MSFT. Deal is imminent and could be done by tonight. Price being mentioned is $17~$19."
Update: Andrew Ross Sorkin has spoken with people close to both companies and isn't buying it.
