Goodbye, Yahoo!

My oldest Internet ID, three letters, is vintage 1996. Yahoo’s impending demise, which could be to Verizon, almost certainly will mark the end of our long relationship. We mutually will abandon one another. I’m sorry that it comes to this. Yahoo sealed its fate when cutting the deal to outsource search to Microsoft during summer 2009.
