    no they will still stay as long as Microsoft partners with them. infact they're courageous enough to sell properties like Geocities and Delicious because they know they still can stand.

    Not really.... it's pretty much impossible for them to not make profit. But they are losing market share.

    I think the Yahoo name will be around for awhile still.. especially in Asia.. what happens further on in the future is anyone's guess.

    I maybe past it's glory but I do believe Yahoo will be around even if their site is no longer primarily used for searching stuff.

    In my opinion it is nothing compared to what it was say 3 to 4 years back, and moreover they seem to be closing down their popular services like Buzz, delicious and MyBlogLog etc. Maybe its the start of a downfall.

    I created My first email ID years back in Yahoo. Now If even some one give me money for using Yahoo mail I wont go for it. The number of advertisements they do display is havoc. If we want to check any email urgently we would loose our patience. So I would support the point Yahoo mail is dying.

    It has been on a slow death for quite sometime - especially now that Google just overtook them in their display ad business. To bad as I always loved Yahoo.

    Yahoo has been on the decline for some years and its getting to the stage that i feel it has one more roll of the dice to either stop the decline and rebuild in a differant format or die,while it is in partnership with Microsoft it has a chance and the next 2 years will be crucial time duration.I have to say it has made some crazy business decisions in it time and sometimes i think it still likes siting on its laurel from the past but in cyberspace you have to adapt and Yahoo has not done so hence the decline.

    Yahoo should have never partnered with Bing. I think that was a downturn for them. They had a decent thing going for them, decent money from what I've read. Then, all of a sudden they jump into the Bing deal. Now Yahoo is tanking. Their popularity is down, traffic is down, and a lot of sites and things they were affiliated with are dying or being sold off. I hate to see them go. Microsoft and Bing sure isn't the alternative I like to see. Hopefully they can beef things up and hang on for a while yet, but who knows time will tell I guess.

    They will never take back what Google took them...it's the same situation as Facebook/Myspace.

    Here is my $0.02... Every other lame search engines should/will die off, except bing (for making $) and google (for making $ and finding stuff). On the other hand, everyone should start using noscript and/or similar, to throw off their spyware.
