Jerry Yang Steps Down From Yahoo! CEO Position

Yahoo! No Comments »

Although Yang isn’t completely leaving Yahoo! (he will still remain as “cheif yahoo” and still be on the board of directors) he has decided to step down from the CEO position.

Microsoft Yahoo Deal Not Out The Window Yet

Microsoft, Yahoo! No Comments »

I have to be honest with all of you what many of you think about the iPhone 3G I think about the Microsoft Yahoo story. I don’t believe it would be good for either company to merge and would only buy Google more time to increase its lead against the two in advertising. Yesterday Microsoft [...]

The deadline for Yahoo to reply regarding the Microsoft take over ended Saturday night, so what happens next?
