    I shouldn't laugh at that, but I am.

    I reckon Yahoo is a sinking ship that nothing and no-one is going to turn around, no matter how talented a CEO they might be.

    I think her job is to find a path for a soft landing - jettison anything facing a dead end an focus on what can represent a future for the company. That's a hard task, but she's apparently numbers focussed and very focussed on the task in hand, so she might just pull it off.

    I figured some company would've bought Yahoo by now. It was the de facto portal site years ago but now it's just a shadow of its former self.

    Marissa always interviews well and I expect she'd really give this her best shot...

    Microsoft "offered" (aggressively) to pay over twice what it is valued today in 2008. The offer was vehemently rejected. Many angry investors.

    What's going to bottom out first, her baby or the share price?
