Verizon Inches Closer to Yahoot (Sorry, I Meant Yahoo)

December 7, 2016

I read “AOL CEO Tim Armstrong Optimistic about Yahoo Deal.” The book the “Power of Positive Thinking” emphasizes optimism. Looking at the bright side is good. One can sing “Keep on the Sunny Side,” the snappy tune penned allegedly by June Carter Cash.

The write up points out:

AOL Chief Executive Tim Armstrong said he’s “cautiously optimistic” that Verizon’s acquisition of Yahoo will go through despite the internet company’s disclosure this fall that it suffered a significant data breach.

The point I found interesting was:

the digital media veteran said he’s been working closely with Yahoo Chief Executive Marissa Mayer on strategy and structural planning as if the deal will close. And he’s been impressed with some of Yahoo’s plans for 2017 outside of the integration work.

Perhaps the dynamic duo will craft a new local newspaper play with an enhanced weather map. Sound good? Sure does.

Yahoot. Amazing. Former Baby Bell. More amazing. Together. Most amazing.
