The author reflects on several issues related to Yahoo. He criticizes the length of time before Yahoo chief executive officer (CEO) Jerry Yang stepped down from his position. He mentions that the company's stock has decreased by two-thirds since Yang refused Microsoft's offer to buy the company for $33 a share. He points out that Google has become so dominant that it is easy to forget that Yahoo was the search pioneer.
