Former YellowPages.Com Bidding To Buy Yahoo

The Globe and Mail reports that YP Holdings, owner of the web page formerly known as yellowpages.com is putting in a bid to buy Yahoo.

3 Questions That Arise From This Story

  1. The Yellow Pages are still a thing online? In your face everyone in the media, who has been joking “Yahoo is still a thing online?!”
  2. If you didn’t think Yahoo was still a “thing” online, what exactly have you been looking at online? We’re not saying porn, but if you didn’t know Yahoo, the fourth largest web site in the world, still existed, we’re guessing it was probably porn.
  3. Can we all agree that if salespeople can still sell online Yellow Pages ads, that anyone can sell anything? We assume the people who put copies of USA Today in front of hotel room doors agree.
