Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@DHagar Verzion owns AOL too?! I can't believe I didn't know that already. I think this means Verzion will continue picking up old Internet brands for bargin deals...

Re: Verizon Yahoo Deal
@srufolo1, that may be their "golden goose".  They are truly buying a lot of internet knowledge and experience that is inherently in Yahoo, so this, along with Yahoo's customer base, presents a positive opportunity to drive forward with Verizon's developing digital focus.

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@Michelle, I am with you on the interest in how this develops.  With Verizon's resources and marketing capabilities, we will see what Yahoo can become.  Of course now that Verizon owns AOL I think a picture is forming of their interest in becoming more of a digital company - so Yahoo fits.  We will see where their vision takes them and how well they are able to implement it.

Re: Verizon Yahoo Deal
Verizon is able to execute--no doubt.   With what is going on with AOL, it will be very interesting to be witness to.

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
There is no question that deregulation is the norm--as long as competition is maintained.  Hopefully the future will work to be transformational on a broad basis.

Re: Verizon Yahoo Deal
@DHagar Exactly. That there is hardly a learning curve makes this buy a no-brainer for Verizon.

@Mike - Do you think with a President and Congress now at the helm, pushing de-regulation at every turn, the deals will more than likely go through?

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@elizabeth That's a great way to describe the deal. It really does feel like Verizon knows something about Yahoo or the future that'll make the purchase worthwhile. I am so curious about the outcome of this deal. What can be done with Yahoo?! It's a super mystery.

Re: Verizon Yahoo Deal
@srufolo1 - I share your view that they are buying that Internet presence.  Let's see what they do with it and if they can be successful in that market.  If so, it is a new value proposition for Verizon, without the steep learning curve.

Re: Skipping today's content distribution
@Adi, I think you have a key to the value Verizon sees.  I also think they are "buying" the didgital market of users from Yahoo, and betting they can retain and grow that customer base.  If so, they have just made the purchase that much sweeter with a lower cost to the acquisition.
