Reuters CEO: Microsoft, Yahoo need each other

Thomson Reuters chief executive Thomas Glocer said he'd be surprised if there wasn't yet a way to make a deal.

CARLSBAD, Calif.--Microhoo remained the topic of the day here, with the latest to offer his opinion being Thomson Reuters CEO Thomas Glocer.

"I don't think Jerry needs my advice," he said, but then went on to say, "I think they need each other. I think it makes a lot of sense. One way or another, I'd be surprised if there wasn't some way to make that happen."

That said, he pointed out that the media tends to make things all about one company, in this case Google. But he said, even with Google, there's room for the Intels, IBMs, and Microsofts of the world. "These are fantastic companies that have a lot of runway," Glocer said.

Up next, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg who just took the stage. Check out Rafe Needleman's Live Blog to see what he has to say about that and other topics.
