    OCT '09 surely sucked for them big time. Now, what happened during the last 3 years for them? (2010-2013)

    I feel sorry for Yahoo but still, I like reading their news pages. I hope that Yahoo will rise up again.

    I dont feel sorry for them at all - somehow, they always manage to offer worse service for more money.

    lol @ geocities being shut down in 2009.

    Can't believe it took them that long to keep it.

    Facebook will probably buy yahoo one day...

    From a business perspective. They should just shut down yahoo and spin it around with a new company and a fresh look for audience.
    I wonder why big corps always fail to see the big writing on the walls. Passing on facebook, youtube, meh what a waste.
