Y’know, back when people thought it would be profitable to do everything through the internet, like grocery shopping? As a contemporary to the dial-up service providers like America Online, it served as a one-stop shop for basically anything. Wanted to know the weather? How your stocks were doing? Sports? Yahoo did it. But time has not been kind to Yahoo as today, the company’s board of directors ousted Carol Bartz, their latest CEO. Their previous chief exec and co-founder, Jerry Yang, was removed not long after turning down a lucrative buyout offer from Microsoft. The problem the company really faces however, is what their business is and what it needs to be.
