Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@Michelle, I don't think there are any - I think they are scraping the bottom of the barrel - so they really need to make the "New" Verizon count!

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@mpouraryan - It looks like the new administration won't be doing much questioning at all when it comes to mergers.... If this article is any implication.

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
ElizabethV, modern demographic segmentation shows that much of the purchasing effect of a segment is governed by status rather than income (the nouveau riche are more easily pressured and fashion driven than old money, but old money buys quietly expensive). Wonder how that plays out with something like Yahoo, in a field where old does not equal better as it does in most status contests?

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@JohnBarnes, realistically that makes sense. Why bother advertising to people who don't have the capital to invest in your product? Tesla isn't going to have an ad at a WIC office. It's about knowing your customer base and what demographic they should and do fall into. Verizon no doubt believes this deal will work out in their favor, or you know they wouldn't continue to pursue it.

Re: Yahoo and SEC
freehe,

That's true but I fear you're too much of an optimist. Most corporate fines, from most agencies, most of the time,  are far too low to deter bad behavior.

Verizon Yahoo Deal
Yahoo is a dinosaur in the age of technology. Hopefully Verizon will revamp it or come up with someone different and better. It is long overdue.

Yahoo and SEC
Whatever cash liabilities the SEC charged Yahoo is not enough to force them to implement better security measures. The fees the SEC fines are so small that it will never change company behavior to effectively protect consumer data.

This will only occur is customers complain and continue to complain enough to demand between service for products and services offered.

@clrmoney, I used www.duckduckgo.com because they don't track you. Most web browsers track you.

Yahoo Data Breaches
Although no company can prevent all security breaches but you would think that a company as big as Yahoo would not experience such a huge data breach. With all the money Yahoo has they should have the best security measures.
