Norichan01 shares some thoughts on Yahoo!: "The 10 disappointing tech stocks item didn't hold much of a surprise, at least not where Yahoo! is concerned. Years back they bought out a nifty news group utility called Dejà News ... and drove it into the ground. They bought out Geocities ... and pounded it into the ground. Weren't they also the ones pressuring Rogers Communications (RCI) to aggressively pursue new customers for their Internet service ... when they later admitted they couldn't even handle those they already had? When the day comes and they go bankrupt, I won't be surprised. Just disappointed it took them that long to get there. And those are just some of the deals they did make. How about Facebook -- the deal Yahoo! managed to bungle? As the story goes, Yahoo! was ready to buy a crazy-popular virtual college yearbook site called Facebook for $100 million, but an executive who is no longer at the company nixed the idea. Wow. Imagine how that would have panned out? Facebook with a Yahoo! makeover, going all portal with it. Tabs across the top, tabs down the left side, tabs along the bottom, blocks of ads on the right, then in the middle, some zany Yahoo Trends-driven stories like suicidal dolphins and a Brad Pitt beard update. Oh and yeah, your Yahoobook page under that. Some 400 million Facebook users owe a certain Yahoo! executive a big thank you for having the brilliant foresight and career-killing decisiveness to squash that deal.
