This is a great post even if you don’t have an MBA. Although the content is awesome and accurate about Yahoo’s strategy. Very nice piece. Yahoo is clearing guning for Google which means stay away from what Microsoft wants and does with their army. I made a few posts today and others have wrote about Yahoo and Google after Yahoo’s brilliant RSS move today.
From Wharton: “It’s unclear whether Yahoo’s positioning is by happenstance or deliberate strategy, these experts note, but the company has found what could become a savvy way to compete with a large number of strong players — target multiple areas, such as music, search and e-commerce, without riling a major competitor. (Remember Microsoft’s ruthless attack against Netscape in the late 1990s.) “There is a lot to be said for positioning yourself in a way that you are not encroaching on Microsoft’s turf.”
Nice mention about how PodTech is doing exclusive Podcasting releases.
