no-one will risk - and big risk - millions on Yahoo! for nostalgic reasons.
Again, just to be clear, I'm not saying it is for nostalgia, I'm saying it is for the big enchiladas ~ the $$ to be realized if it can be pulled off is mindboggling. Just look at Google's quarterly profits. We're talking Big Time money. Yeah, Yahoo may have one foot heading for the grave, but they are not in it yet, and in the meantime, they have links pointing to them, they have name recognition, they have infrastructure, et al. I agree they lack "cool" and I'm also saying they lack vision. But money changes everything, and there's a lot of gamblers out there who would get a rush from rolling the dice. I hope someone will do it because I'm itching to see a knock down drag out fight with Google. Even it is a fight to a draw, it'll pay for itself many times over. But the only chance is with money & vision & committment, otherwise, it's an exercise in futility.
