  1. It’s really interesting to see, but makes total sense for Yahoo!.

    Drop the search and replace it with Bing for a yearly percentage of advertising revenue. Yahoo! get to cut costs by throwing out their search department (and any other related departments), yet get a constant stream of money for doing less work.

    Hopefully Yahoo! will refocus it’s efforts on making new innovative products and improving some older properties like Flickr, etc.
