Carol Bartz fired as Yahoo CEO, sends farewell via iPad

Yahoo have finally sacked their inconsistent CEO, Carol Bartz few hours ago. This termination was long due, owing to the lack of vision and foul-mouthed-ness of Carol. She got to keep her Yahoo-gifted iPad, though, from where she sends a farewell message:

To all,
I am very sad to tell you that I’ve just been fired over the phone by Yahoo’s Chairman of the Board [Roy Bostock] . It has been my pleasure to work with all of you and I wish you only the best going forward.
Carol
Sent from my iPad

Now that the mess is cleared, where can we see Yahoo heading?

Video: Eric Schmidt blabs about Ballmer, Jobs

I was on the board until I couldn’t stand the board anymore.

Ex-Apple man and current Google CEO, Eric Schmidt came down clean on why he left Apple, though that’s the only thing he said on the issue, without elaborating on it.

Eric was on stage at Salesforce.com’s Dreamforce 2011 conference with CEO Marc Benioff at San Francisco’s Moscone West center, Apple’s preferred venue for product launches. Apart from speaking of his Apple exit, he went on to appreciate Steve Jobs’ contribution to the field of technology, attracting applauds from the crowd.

What Steve has done at Apple is certainly the best performance of a CEO for over fifty years, maybe a hundred years. But not only did he do it once, he did it twice. We’ve all benefited from the tremendous innovation at Apple. And I say this as a very proud former board member at Apple.
