Re: Verizon/Yahoo
There clearly is some "road to travel" still especially as it just came out today that Yahoo's top lawyer resigned and Marisa Meyer let go of our 2016 & 2017 compensation.    Although she's not in "dire need", It is still significant.   The strength, though, will come in advertising more than anything else to indeed leverage the users--even though who knows how many of them are actually active....

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
This is underscored also by the FCC Chair's recent comments about his disdain for Net Neutrality.    On a side note, I saw recent developments at Yahoo--as the top lawyer resigned and Marisa Meyer took a bit hit on her pay as Yahoo winds down as a de facto independent entity--what a tragedy--isn't it?

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@John, that is an interesting point.  Old, without building on an establishment, actually just is "old", as opposed to proven value.  We will have to update our vocabulary won't we?

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@elizabeth It does seem like a great strategy. I would like to know what kind of returns these advertisers see from the older account holders. I doubt we'll ever see that data, but it would be really interesting to see the ROI.

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
@John Really? Wow! I had no idea. These are folks who both have a lot of money and aren't keen to switch services? What old tech company will Verizon buy next?

@Michelle, it will be interesting to watch.  We will see if they know how to operate and lead in this new territory for them.  If they do it right they will win, if not - your trainwreck will occur!
