Yahoo!, eBay in Talks

PALO ALTO, California -- Yahoo! Inc. and eBay Inc., two of the most popular consumer sites on the Internet, are in talks to consider a possible alliance or merger, the cable network CNBC reported Tuesday, citing people close to the discussions.

A source close to the talks said there was a 50-50 chance of a "deep partnership" between eBay and Yahoo!, with a "significantly" smaller chance that Yahoo! would buy eBay outright, CNBC said.
