Verizon on Yahoo deal
Yahoo is my favorite web browser to research and check emails etc. And them teaming up with Yahoo may be a good look because Verizon offers many things for customers etc.

Re: Verizon on Yahoo deal
Why is Verizon buying yahoo after the press said it has not gotten anywhere with AOL? Verizon best move is to push out it fiber network in data and newer video service to their customer and provide anyone the right to use it network as a app so they can be able to use Wi-Fi service.  We can't just look  at buying a company just for one need we need to move it forward like  Comcast how they are moving to a app platform for their TV service with everything going over the internet is the key to Verizon business model.

Skipping today's content distribution
Verizon may be looking to skip today's generation of entertainment technology, and is focused more on emerging entertainment apps. That might be why it has persisted with Go90 for so long, because it believes the future is about streaming and online apps. That's where an ad monetization model could be valuabel, and Yahoo's ad tech and 1 billion users do have considerable value -- the challenge will be finding ways to monetize it that Yahoo couldn't.

Verizon/Yahoo
I feel like Yahoo is this dilapidated house on the wrong side of the tracks that everyone has lost interest in. Just a few loyals will occasionally make their way over there, never to stay very long. Verizon is the rich man in town who wants to buy the property because he knows something no one else knows. So while the rest of the town sits and jeers at the rich man, he quietly knows exactly what he's doing.

Re: Verizon/Yahoo
I agree about the ad technology being the key piece to the deal. Of course, it remains to be seen how it will work with AOL. I think AT&T going after more content via the Time Warner deal is a stronger play going forward. And this is assuming that both deals pass regulatory muster.

Verizon Yahoo Deal
If Verizon is willing to shell out $4.48 billion to buy Yahoo, it must have a damn good reason for doing so. I, too believe it has its eye on the advertising revenue. Yahoo being mainly an Internet company, it will be interesting to see what Verizon has in store regarding this acquisition.

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.

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: 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
@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?
