Personally, I've seen Yahoo! as a sleeping giant -- one of the only true portals on the planet -- one that could actually make a resurgence.
Amen, the homepage is a great browser default home page candidate because anything you might want to see can be found right there.
My personal fav: Fantasy sports. Top notch free/paid service, if they mess that up we're going to have words! I use the finance section and the sports/movies/weather a bunch too. I can't say I like the fluff (OMG, Horoscopes, Games etc) but many do and they are well done.
yahoo isn't a search engine, they're an amazing portal. Sad to see such a colossal lack of leadership doing them in. Make a call leaderguy, and I don't mean a call to ask for opinions or outsourcing, use your own!
