One of the near-cardinal rules of Wall Street is that companies who dismiss their CEOs typically fall all over themselves to reassure investors that they're hunting for new candidates and/or have tapped great interim leaders to fill the gap. Yahoo has opted to take a different approach and is reportedly focused on whether or not the company should be sold, rather than soliciting resumes. The move is an understandable one given Yahoo's long-term difficulties, but it could undermine the confidence of investors who feel the company's best course is to remain together. It's been a little over two years... Read more...
Surprised?  You shouldn't be.  This was inevitable once Carl Icahn got his Board seat. After all, he had once said that if he could oust the complete Yahoo! Board, the first order of business for a new Board would be to: "Move expeditiously to replace Jerry Yang with a new CEO with operating experience."On Monday, Yahoo! announced that a search for a new CEO had begun.  In a press release, Chairman Roy Bostock said: "Over the past year and a half, despite extraordinary challenges and distractions, Jerry Yang has led the repositioning of Yahoo! on an open platform model as well as...

Hewlett-Packard probably looked at the big pile of cash Microsoft pushed under Yahoo! CEO Jerry Yang's nose, and thought: If you're not interested, I wouldn't mind a piece of that. Microsoft just wants to find a way to drive users to their Live Search toolbar, and they really don't care how they do it. Now Microsoft has struck a deal with Hewlett-Packard to make Live Search the default search engine on Hewlett-Packard PCs in North America, starting in January. The deal also calls for HP, the world's largest PC maker, to install copies of Internet Explorer with an extra Live Search toolbar on those... Read more...
The on-again/off-again Microsoft/Yahoo! deal is on again - maybe. There's something about being a co-founder of a business that affects how you think. Jerry Yang is a co-founder and the CEO of Yahoo! and he seems to be laboring under the mis-impression that "co-founder" still means "owner." If you want to own a business, you shouldn't make it into a corporation and sell shares. The shareholders that really own Yahoo! are very receptive to Microsoft's latest overture to at least make a deal for Yahoo's search function and some other assets. And they're safeguarding their interest by sending minders... Read more...
Yahoo investors have finally gotten their way and a replacement for (now former) CEO Terry Semel has been named: Co-founder Jerry Yang.  It isn't that Terry Semel wasn't a capable leader, in fact he lead the company in the dark times that are now referred to as the .com crash era, but investors felt that he lacked the ability to guide the company in the current marketplace.  So what's next for Yahoo now?  Current speculation is that Jerry Yang is going to shake a lot of things up and potentially be looking for opportunities to partner with major players in many industries. "Yahoo on Monday replaced... Read more...
Steve "Stratus" Grever from Hardware-Review.Net has reviewed a wild looking case from Logisys, the "Yin Yang".  It's not exactly my style because I'm a stickler for good cable management and a more subdued appearance, but I'm sure many of you will totally dig the two-tone, translucent look of this puppy.Having a clear acrylic case was considered "cool" a couple years ago, but now the fad seems to have wore off. To help bring back the hype to clear cases, Logisys developed the two-tone, blue/clear acrylic Yin Yang ATX case, which is on our test bench today. Let's see if... Read more...
Good evening friends, how was your day?  I just popped some pills that should help me kick this cold / sleep tonight.  So, before I loose total coherence to the world around me, let's get the news posted.  Here is your evening shot of juice...  Matrix Orbital MX422 LCD Review @ GruntvillE.com "The MX422 is basically the LK204-24-USB LCD display mounted on a nice looking double 5-1/4" drive bay insert. The front has a brushed metal finish which is pretty typical in the nicer aluminum cases like the Cooler Master and the Lian Li. The rear of the unit looks a little confusing... Read more...
The CF-S868 Small Form Factor PC Shuttle's Got Some Competition... By, Marco Chiappetta August 28, 2002 After laying your eyes on any of Shuttle's initial small form factor mini systems, you can't help but want one.  Their compact, aluminum design and high level of integration make them suitable for a multitude of tasks.  They're also just plain cool to look at!  There was one notable feature missing from their first few SFF systems though, an AGP slot.  Well, the product we'll be looking at today solves that problem.  The CF-868 "e-cube", also sold under the...
