Re: paradox (Brief Thoughts)
I am sorry @Dhagar...forgot this as well on Yahoo...the predicament seems to be challenging for Yahoo ever more as we await consolidation & transformation....

Onward to the weekend....

Yahoo is expecting to see another 15% decline in revenues, with its earnings dropping by over 20%, according to a report by Re/code. The report cites a sale "book" that was handed out to potential Yahoo buyers.

Re: paradox
Thank you for your comments @DHagar.   To add to what this brave soul is advocating, I thought the following was quite appropriate:

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it,
or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
- The Buddha

The only sovereign you can allow to rule you is reason.
- Terry Goodkind 

If we would guide by the light of reason
we must let our minds be bold.
- Louis D. Brandeis 

The ultimate authority must always rest
with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Despite the strides made in "AI" (with Google Deepmind, etc.) it is still up to us to make sure this is never ever forgotten.  To me, that's the ultimate transformation.   Whether it is realistic is another key challenge we all need to realize.

Re: paradox
@mpouraryan, I am with you on the political assessment - hopefully the discussions will get more meaningful!

Understand thoughts on Verizon/AOL - I still am questioning whether that was a good fit.  If so, the Yahoo is a good alignment.  Let's see if Verizon can line that up well and truly be competitive.

Re: paradox
Thank you very much m'aam.

On a side note, thought you all might enjoy this..in line with the deliberations you and I have had on the "human touch"--glad to see we're not alone in the universe:
Kentaro Toyama on Why Technology Alone Won't Change the World. The University of Michigan professor believes that to solve human problems, human skill is needed more urgently than ever before.

Re: paradox
I view Verizon as a bit of a better fit to intergrate it with AOL to help push content--I have been amazed that AT&T has not gone after it especially in light of the long-standing partnership they've had on content.    As for the @POTUS 2016 campaign, it is a nice reality show--but until the parties sort it all out, not worth watching--I for one will try not to add to the billions contributed by the media..and at my company, the Daily Outsider, we won't be....

Re: paradox
@mouraryan, I am with you on Twitter.  They seem to have the "right stuff' though in the features and the consumer-focused services.  So I am betting on them as well!

Thanks - you have a great weekend as well!

Re: paradox
@mpouraryan, I am with you - that is interesting to think of the Verizon/Yahoo - I am not sure if that is as good of a fit.    I would think the Google/Yahoo would be better.  Some of the players are moving into new territory where I am not sure they are as well prepared (ie Verizon) for fully optimizing the opportunities.

Yes, this will be as good to watch as the Presidential race?
