It's the beginning of the decline.
That was way back when the hired Terry "Hollywood" Semel to come in and run a tech company.
They could (or maybe could have) made a resurgence but they always seem to fire the brains, outsource the tech and replaced it with TV ads and ineffective outrageously overpaid executives. Yahoo! is a shell that will continue a slow decline. They will continue to cut costs to increase profitability until the only thing left to cut is the overgrown grass outside an empty headquarters.
