Are they kidding?  :hysterical:  :hysterical:  :hysterical:  :hysterical:

 

Today, AOL CEO Tim Armstrong triumphantly announced that, starting this summer, the merged operations of AOL and the acquired Internet business of Yahoo would transform into a new Verizon-owned megalith company. It shall be named... Oath.

Perhaps the name comes from what Verizon executives swore after they heard about Yahoo's multiple data breaches. Or maybe it came from what many Yahoo employees have been uttering over the last year, as the companies wound their way through the acquisition process and accompanying layoffs. Or perhaps "Oath" came to mind when those same employees heard about Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's proposed severance package.

I couldn't care less what they'd be doing with Yahoo!. All I want is a better, more simplified, less bloated, Yahoo! Finance. :)

Yeah, they ruined Yahoo along with Finance. Everything is turning into a page optimized for a phone.

 

I haven't seen Mr Bean in a very long time. Love that guy.
