As a part of the Microsoft-Yahoo search deal, about 400 Yahoos will soon start working for Microsoft instead.
Microsoft will hire no less than 400 Yahoo employees and will pay them competitively. The companies will also agree on a retention plan to keep those 400 and an additional 150 Yahoo employees to help in the transition.

- Microspotting — An official Microsoft blog that looks at the lives of employees. Not too cheesy.
- All about Microsoft — Mary Jo Foley wrote the book on Microsoft. Or like 7 of them.
