    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A breakup would allow you to raise a lot of cash and increase your focus. Yes, Yahoo! has the title of sole surviving portal company, but the rest of the world is past that. Find your niche in the mobile market and take inspiration from the facebook business model rather than Google's. We have experienced questionable leadership in the past, let's hope the new CEO has some bright ideas and can execute.
