Yahoo!... reported a fourth-quarter loss because of reorganization costs and international expenses. Sales met analysts' estimates, sending the shares higher.
The loss was $303.4 million, or 22 cents a share, compared with a profit of $205.7 million, or 15 cents, a year earlier...
I really don't know what function it has as I never have a reason to visit their site.
Discussion boards and news, some nice reviews & maps, and their stores perhaps. Being first has been a great advantage for Yahoo to stake out territory and bend traffic flow probabilities to their own offerings.
These don't seem like the makings of a top notch company.
All these tools are absolute leaders in their field. The odd thing about Yahoo is that the sum of its parts is worth more than the whole.
What they need is:
1) SEARCH : fix it and make it the candy that makes people go to yahoo first
2) Then, once people go to Yahoo, push all these great tools they have and minimize the content push.
3) Do like G, use other people's content.
