Report: Yahoo Ready To Name New CEO, With PayPal President Top Choice [allthingsd.com]
According to sources close to the situation, Yahoo is poised to name a CEO, an announcement that could come as early as tomorrow.

Sources said the leading candidate likely to get the nod is a dark horse and someone who has not been named in previous reports (and not my suggested lists!): PayPal President Scott Thompson, who runs eBay’s massive online payments unit.

While the situation could certainly change, the Yahoo board has definitely been moving aggressively of late to try to find a new leader for the Silicon Valley Internet giant.

Maybe Yahoo can come up with the Next Paypal. I would not mind them having some competition. He probably also could do something to compete with Stubhub another Ebay property. Good luck to him let's hope he can do something with Yahoo and revive their search and more!
