Is Yahoo For Sale

For all the craziness and mismanagement at Yahoo, I still love them.  I can’t change to Gmail full-time, or have anywhere as my jumping off point except My Yahoo.  It’s a shame they can’t get it together, they had such an advantage.

In addition to firing CEO Carol Bartz, Yahoo’s board has now put the company up for sale.

The person who briefed the Wall Street Journal on the Bartz firing also told the paper that “Yahoo is open to selling itself to the right bidder.”

That’s the equivalent of sticking a FOR SALE sign on the lawn.

The board canned Bartz, the WSJ’s sources say, after studying the company’s assets for two weeks and concluding that Bartz was doing a lousy job. If this is really true, one wonders what on earth the board has been doing for the past two years, while pretty much everyone else concluded the same thing.
