    Yahoo CEO is working on major restructuring of the company that could slash thousands of jobs. The restructured Yahoo would take shape in January. This is the internet giant's first major change under its ex-PayPal CEO Scott Thompson. The restructuring will focus on products group, research, marketing and public relations, and businesses that are not core to the company. "As we have indicated, our leadership is engaged in a process that will generate significant strategic change at Yahoo, but final decisions have not yet been made at this point. Beyond that, we will not comment," Yahoo said in a statement given to Reuters.

    yahoo is the poor man's google. yahoo does not innovate, they simply copy what others do. their search algorithm is pretty lame as well.

    You'd have to be in really bad shape if that's so, because Google is free.
    Depth and Easy Rhino say thanks.

    I like Yahoo ABC news best among the Web search homepages but Yahoo search never gives you anything other than store fronts as results....That gets on mah Fukin Nerves!!!
    Google isn't that far behind tho.

    Saddly I think Google has been taking pages from Yahoo's book recently when it comes to it's search engine. The changes they've made have really made google a lot cappier than it used to be.

    Though I haven't seriously used yahoo for searching in years(I do still use it as my primary email account though).
