    As Google have captured the World wide web, every one else on the web have to cut expenses and i guess one day every one would have to sell all online contents to Google..... Yahoo might now agree to sell it to Google.

    Google defied the downturn to post a better result whereas yahoo joined others to show the negative trend. While google is the boss in its niche, yahoo is not and it is reflected in the result...
    BTW, layoff is a common phenomenon during recession.

    I think it would be best for Yahoo to adopt slowly search based Ads like google and phase out their display and graphical ad systems and move towards newer more popular areas.

    Almost all of Yahoo's business is based around display ads, it would be very hard for them to move out of that area completely. I agree they should focus on search more, but right now that ship has sailed, barring any new breakthroughs.
