And this is infotainment too

Yahoo CEO says company is not 'under siege'
Yang and Yahoo President Susan Decker said the company was reorganizing around four pillars: home page, search, mail and mobile services.

"The essence of Yahoo is being defined today," Yang said. "We have to be incredibly relevant to the consumer. We want you to start your day at Yahoo."

Now I get it. Just an online version of "Good Morning America" (a property of the Mickey Mouse company). (Prediction: Yahoo! will be acquired by Disney. It's a much better fit than with Microsoft. (Regarding which, see here.) And if it happens, you read it here first.)

And exactly when will people wake up to realize they are being insulted when referred to as "consumers"?
