    Must suck to be booted from a company that you created.

    he's the idiot who refused $31/share offer from MSFT.

    IF Steve had stayed at Apple, I'm under the conviction it would have sunk faster than Yahoo.
    His exile years gave him enlightenment and perspective.

     

    And impact the whole world extremely positively!

    No, it was 41.00 a share from MSFT and he held out for 42.00. He should of been shown the door 4 years ago.

    YHOO - The any news is good news stock.

     

    Jerry Yang - Thank you for your contributions to the internet and pioneering one of the top sites in existence today. The people who have soured on your leadership are the ones who misunderstood investing into the tech bubble and found you a suitable scapegoat. Heck, most of them didn't even create multi-billion dollar companies.
