Carol Bartz no longer at the head of Yahoo is rather interesting. However, the writing has been on the wall. The company has taken a hit recently, with Microsoft’s Bing becoming the default search engine on a site whose key feature was search. At the same time,search has evolved, and like Aol, Yahoo has tried to keep up, but just has not been able to do so.
What may be even better is how Bartz responded to her dismissal. Microsoft had offered over 40 Billion dollars to acquire Yahoo, and right about now that offer looks pretty good. However, Bartz and Co. carried on, even with Yahoo Mail, or YMail if you like, as the only redeemable feature. Let’s see where Yahoo goes from here, because if Bartz plans to stay on the board, the future is quite intriguing.
