Yahoo! Sucks At Handling Acquisitions
from the throw-out-the-goodwill dept
Here’s an article suggesting that what’s really wrong with Yahoo! is that they suck in handling acquisitions. The main complaint is that they throw out a lot of goodwill in renaming their acquisitions (such as eGroups to YahooGroups) and piss off their users by requiring new logins, changing links and bookmarks, and basically making everything a mess for no good reason.

Look at what a mess google has made of dejanews. Instead of keeping the interface alive until they had something else, they bought the data, killed the interface and pissed of the users. Yeah, that’s a good idea…
