This CEO with a fake degree and that Egyptian politician with an American Mom. What is wrong with people. 
 
+Khalid Al Marri Those were just excuses. Both of them. Especially here where the complainers had such a clear agenda.
 
no...Yahoo just can't afford a gardener to remove the dead tree!
 
Yahoo is losing a great CEO. Too bad for Yahoo, a totally messed up company.
 
I cant believe Yahoo AND Google had a building.....they are just a search engine!!
 
Yahoo maybe, but should I remind you that Google does more than search? Android, Google Apps for Business, AdWords/AdSense... and more.
 
Christina and Laxi, you are right they don't have buildings they all work in Jungle and in cloud, holding an engine in their hand...lol
 
zzzzzzzz.......wait wuh??
 
+Lexi Zubler Google, JUST a search engine?? LOL.. Google has many many buildings around the world
 
they should have sold out when they thought they were worth something! good bye yahoo.
 
how could a college degree help Scott Thompson to save Yahoo ?

Yahoo's fate is inevitable.
