So, I’m out of the loop on this one. I didn’t even know this merger happened. Or maybe I did, I seem to remember FiOS coming with a Yahoo! e-mail address Now it seems vaguely familiar.
Anyway, what corporate genius, now probably a billionaire, convinced Verizon to buy Yahoo and AOL? I never want to laugh at people losing their jobs, but man what an incredible oversight. I thought AOL wasn’t growing, and just maintained existing accounts as it is?
I think Yahoo! is the go-to provider for ISP given e-mail, but I don’t know many that use it outside of that. I have a small circle, though.
Crazy news. Of all the phone/Internet providers I prefer Verizon the most. Can’t believe they made such a … obviously bad decision?
