Ever since Microsoft cancelled their bid for Yahoo on Saturday articles and analyses of the implications spring up in huge masses on blogs and major news outlets. Looks like many journalists did not have Sunday off.

The whole topic is of course a bone for writers as it is extremely rich on facets and possible next events.
First thing everybody is looking at is the Yahoo stock when the markets open today.
Will it tank into nowhere? If it does, it would open the door to other companies to try to acquire Yahoo.
Other speculations are around the Google and Yahoo relationship moving forward, Yahoo shareholder going rampage, Steve Ballmer keeping his job or not, possible other acquisition targets for Microsoft and more. Below is a round up of interesting coverage I found so far.
