Yahoo? Hmm...

Oh yes, I remember Yahoo. What are they doing these days? Anything at all?

I think they still handle consumer email for BT and have a messenger client, but that's pretty much it.

I'm not sure why any buyer would want them.

Grab your zimmer frame Yahoo! You time is almost up

I wouldn't give them 15p per share. Yahoo's day and come and gone and they certainly fucked up when they rejected the Microsoft offer. I had Yahoo messenger installed on my PC at one point with about 30 to 40 contacts on it. the last time I was signed in on it (quite a while ago) there was one of them online. Yahoo is really nothing more than a pointless leftover from the dot com boom that failed to keep up with the times. It's like a desperate old uncle trying to cling on to it's youth and wanting to stay cool and hang with the kids when in reality it's just getting old, tired and wrinkled. I doubt there is any fountain of youth waiting for Yahoo!!!!!.
