LOL because most of their 'news' is blended fact and fiction...they have a hard time differentiating between what their opinions are and what the truth is. In this article, they promote as fact what is merely implicated if you look at things a certain way.

Yahoo just paid a child $30MM for an app, I'm not too sure that every other employee/idea/etc has to originate from the ivy league and I don't think they're stupid enough to think that only hiring people from Harvard is the magical new business plan that will save them. Remember that the majority of these companies were built by otherwise unimpressive people...

I'm assuming you're joking, but in case you aren't, I don't read Fox News because I find it to be incredibly sensationalized BS. The vast majority of their programming is meant to rile people up to fight those "crazy libs" and "that African in the White House."

I will admit that their anchors are very easy on the eyes, but they generally just spew insane crap. Their intentions are not to inform their viewers about the news and let them draw their own conclusions, rather they work to brainwash those who watch it.

And before I get attacked as if I'm just some lib attacking Fox News because its a hip thing to do, I'd actually consider myself more conservative than liberal. I'm just objective enough to realize the slant they put on just about everything. I prefer to get my news from sources that are less biased.

Better question: Given a few tech offers, would someone actually pick Yahoo? I don't know, that $30m acquisition from the kid with the ubiquitous app seems a bit desperate. I could be wrong though.

Please don't quote Patrick Bateman.

Also I hope she realizes she will be competing with not just Facebook and Google but Intel, IBM, Microsoft,4square, Oracle, maybe banks, a few consulting firms, maybe hedge funds, APPL,GM,GE etc and you are only selecting from eight schools, they have ~ 1000 open slots that seam techy there are prob not even 1000 CS/Math/Physics/Eng majors in all those schools combined maybe if you include masters/ph.d students, but even then at that level there are way better opportunities available for them and Ph.D students will most likely go into professor track route.

Also, you have to factor in each those companies listed offer internships for which they give FT offers, it seems rare upon inspection for interns on last year to go to another company after receiving an offer. Yahoo to my knowledge doesn't have big intern classes. This will come back to haunt them.

Furthermore, the true problem with websites is it's very hard to be profitable unless you are selling a product other than advertising that links to another sellers website for commission. Yahoo currently is just a Mobil version of the NYT where one can go to post comments, which is why one must believe they hard caped in terms of profits and revenue.

Honestly, this company atm is just a company version of a treasury security/microsoft and the stock price can be modeled as such whose price rises with inflation/currency market.

If Yahoo wants to make money, sell the search engine analytic and try to create a in house email system to compete with Microsoft outlook as it stands they go uncontested currently. Who ever creates a more efficient easier maintenance business email system will have a nice floor in terms of revenue.

Google hires a lot more people from Stanford and Berkeley than any Ivy.

Who gives a fuck? Tech industry is a bunch of limp-dicked homosexuals that do nothing but stroke each other off all day. And not those buff homosexuals that work out either. The little bitch ones. The twinks.

Let them have their new crop of pussies, lord knows each and every one of those little bitches would get dusted in a heartbeat on Wall Street.

P.S. I do agree that most techies would get eaten alive here, I'm just being difficult.
