Google and Yahoo said Friday that they had agreed to delay the start of their search advertising partnership to give the Justice Department more time to investigate its antitrust implications.
“The companies have agreed to a brief delay in implementing this agreement to continue our ongoing discussions with the Department of Justice,” Yahoo said. “We have had discussions with regulators and look forward to responding to their questions about this agreement.”
Can you imagine a world without Yahoo?
Sure. For me the world without Yahoo! exists already today. While I know it's there, I would not MISS it one bit. I would have cheered if the company would have merged with Microsoft, because that might have created a genuine competitor for Google. But Jerry and Sue thought differently, and brought the value from $34 to $16. Well done!
And unless you have been living in a cave, there is this thing they are calling an "economic crisis" going on right now. Most stocks are in the crapper. I am sorry you investment did not pan out.
most of the top technical people at Yahoo already bailed right?
What is the source of this information? So far mostly execs are bailing out, even if technical people do it does not get much press as they are usually not the kind of people who get large publicity when they leave. I personally doubt majority of top tech guys jumped the ship just yet.

Scroll down to 2008 onwards, this is just the vip list..
Sidebar: everyone of those I mentioned had monster truckloads of press when they left and had blurbs on all of the major financial channels.
I am speaking from experience - the best people in the industry that have left Google have left for the challenge, we don't talk about the skill leakage from Google do we?
The people that have left Yahoo is because it became stale - with a merger the chance of doing something massive is there, and that is one hell of a carrot.
