ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of a deal allowing Google to place ads on Yahoo web sites. Yahoo will be a far less attractive place to work for engineers who want to be on the top of technological advance. Yahoo seemed to want to be anything but a tech company until chief executive Jerry Yang retook the reins. The possible combination of Yahoo and Microsoft's Web traffic is one reason investors consider the idea of an acquisition.
