    You go, girls! Sixteen women heading S&P 500 firms averaged earnings of $14.2M in their latest fiscal years, 43% more than the male average, a Bloomberg study finds. Big winners: Carol Bartz (YHOO), $47.2M and Irene Rosenfeld (KFT), $26.3M. "When you see numbers like this, one can truly say that the glass ceiling in corporate America has been shattered."

    Google's (GOOG) share of the search market fell slightly in April, while rivals Yahoo (YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT) each gained share due in part to the introduction of new site navigation features, comScore says.

    Carol Bartz (YHOO) can trash-talk Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOG) all she wants, but her dismissive remarks about Yahoo's continuous brain drain make light of the company's "most profound dysfunction."

    U.S. internet usage climbed 7.6% in March from February, according to Nielsen's latest survey. eBay (EBAY), AOL Inc. (AOL), and Yahoo (YHOO) were the biggest gainers on time spent per person, but Facebook rules in overall time spent with an average 7 hours/month - almost 5.5 hours more than its closest competitor.

    App stores are nice, but the real coup is on-deck placement on a phone's home screen; Yahoo (YHOO) has announced a deal that puts it in such prime ground on "tens of millions" of Samsung phones.

    It's not that long ago that Google (GOOG) made its biggest misstep, says Chris Thompson - no, not sinking billions into YouTube, nor the privacy flap around Google Buzz. It was the strenuous fight against the merger of Microsoft (MSFT) and Yahoo (YHOO) that was the best thing to happen to Ballmer & Co. since MS-DOS, saving them billions.

    In an apparent surprise to Yahoo (YHOO), its top revenue generator, Joanne Bradford, is reportedly leaving the search giant to become chief revenue officer at Demand Media. Bradford was set to play a key role in Yahoo's partnership with Microsoft (MSFT).

    In the square-off between Google (GOOG) and China, the Chinese government almost certainly has the advantage. The local search engine Baidu (BIDU) has about 60% of the Chinese market, and Yahoo (YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT) say they have no intention of leaving China and will follow local laws. So China does not need Google, but Google does need China.

    Yahoo (YHOO -2.3%) is dubbed a "value trap," as it continues to lose market share in search, and online content and display ad sectors look increasingly fragmented. “Scale and momentum increasingly reside with Bing (MSFT).”

    Search market share reports from comScore and Hitwise show more of the same: Yahoo (YHOO) slipping, Microsoft (MSFT) gaining, Google (GOOG) leading with a commanding share. But with their deal in place, Microsoft gains little by taking Yahoo's share.

    Yahoo (YHOO) and Twitter get cozy, announcing a partnership today. Yahoo users will be able to access their Twitter feeds directly from some Yahoo sites, and Yahoo will better integrate Twitter into its search results.
