Ultimately, it seems that the losers are a) shareholders (i guess they're the most important as they've actually put money in) and B) the yahoo users who get progressively ageing services relative to.the competition.
Think today's announcement about Bing using Facebook data in its searches. Couldn't Yahoo have done this with Delicious and Flickr data years ago? Other examples are too numerous to mention....

Now one can realise how the management of Yahoo! Has commited the bigest mistake of declining takeover by Microsoft. Microsoft was paying more than what deserves but... If Yahoo had accepted the offer, I am sure we must be enjoying greater Y-mail integrated with MS office web applications and plenty of other features instead of cash crunch. Also MS might have get rid of hotmail.com domain by projecting yahoo.com or ymail.com for their webmail service.
