Yahoo! used to be great (really).
Thinking they had to beat Google was their first mistake.
They were always an "index" more than a search engine -- should have stayed that way.
They also had a few good chomps at being the defacto destination web portal which could have grown into a "social network" -- it looks like they've invested about $3.99 into technology in the past 5 years, (enough for a roll of generic duct tape to hold it together).
Their forums, webmail, and MyYahoo! pages look like development was abandoned in 1999.
Me and a dozen monkey's banging on keyboards could do better than Bartz did... maybe me an a half dozen.
