Just like Madonna, if you want to stay at the top, you have to 'reinvent' yourself continually! Yahoo didn't get it, My Space didn't get it, Facebook is 'changing', but not really 'reinventing' yet, and there is Google+ just coming up, looking to be that new Fresh thing! So, unless Yahoo can Change enough to be seen as a Reinvention, it too will go the way of My Space!!

Re: "We are intensifying our efforts on our core businesses and redeploying resources to our most urgent priorities."


We've all heard that kind of talk before. Usually right before one of two things: a buyout or a slow painful decline. Sometimes both.

Thats only an average of $187,500 per worker. About average for Obama's new hires.

And this just in on Thompson...

"New Yahoo! Chief Executive Scott Thompson will make $1 million this year, and is eligible for a $2 million bonus on top if the company’s board deems him worthy."

How many folks do you have to lay off to be deemed 'worthy'?

Yes this is true but if you'll note MySpace still exsists. ;)
