Carol Bartz’s tumultuous tenure as the CEO of Yahoo has come to an abrupt end according a report from All Things Digital. Bartz was named CEO of the Internet giant in January 2009 after previously serving as CEO of Autodesk.

yes, they are, get over that socialist idea
Whether it is a good business move or not, firing anyone over the phone is pretty harsh.
It is not a huge surprise that she has been fired, but doing it over the phone is a no-no. That is definitely something that needs to be done face to face.
Had Carol returned my call I would have told her how if she would just give Yahoo a 2010 facelift, clean out a few cobwebs, go long on local, and run some "fun" t.v. ads, your company might have a chance. But never mind, I see you're suicidal.
P.S. - if you decide not to kill yourself, give me a call -- you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Google and WebmasterWorld
Well, four days and a $14m golden parachute later, Bartz has stepped down from the Yahoo board. I guess $14m more than compensates for any nagging feeling of commitment that she might have left the company with.
The Wall Street Journal's Amir Efrati claimed the $14m estimate in a tweet that followed a detailed 'what next' story over the weekend.
