Looks very much like a conspiracy between Google and Microsoft to kill Yahoo...

Poor poor Jerry Yang. Geez I really feel for the guy. Think I might call him up and offer to trade places.

If Microsoft doesn't make a new offer this week then I'll bet Jerry Yang will be gone as CEO by the end of the month. I sense Mr. Yang is a pretty smart guy who had the inspiration to start Yahoo but I don't think he's up to running a $30 billion company.
Well, I was wrong about the timing but I'm amazed the board didn't turf him earlier. His arrogance and intransigence cost shareholders $30 or $40 billion.
