    Investors certainly punished the Internet company on Monday for
    letting the prospective deal go away, and they enthusiastically
    cheered Microsoft's abandonment of a $42 billion bid. But a jog

    its hand, suggests that it's actually Microsoft that has emerged most
    damaged from the affair.
