Carl Icahn's added value

They put Icahns stooges on the board. IMHO as a shareholder, Icahn is a trojan horse, a man who makes money by driving down the price of a company, buying it cheap, then selling it off to it's competitors for a massive gain for himself. He does not add value, when you let his stooges on the board, it was a bad mistake in my view.

Re: Again!

I'm glad they don't do the "Exclaim! After! Every! Word!" thing any more. It was funny a few times, but after that it just got annoying for those of us who do actually read things as the punctuation dictates, even when reading in our heads.

I mean, do you know how much longer it takes to read a headline when your mind keeps pausing after each exclamation mark?

On topic though, it makes you wonder if they'd actually have been much better off under MS? Sure, they might have looked a bit more stable and the stockholders might have a few more dollars, but the layoffs of the actual staff who do the work would still have happened as departments merged and Google would still be Grand Emperor of the Intarwebs.

@AC, Re: yahoo! in! dumbass! mode!

Wow, so much irony. The bad grammar - lack of spelling - resorting to $ in various Microsoft references, and then the dig at Americans being spelled wrong.
