Daily Debrief: Figuring out Yahoo, Post-reorg

Meet the new boss. He -- and she is -- a lot like the old boss. What's different is the lineup of execs they now direct.

We got an earful from Yahoo insiders earlier Thursday on their plans post-reorg. Now, the $64,00 question is whether any of this is going to make a difference. All the while, Steve Ballmer's waiting in the wings with a big fat Microsoft checkbook, debating whether or not to make another stab at acquiring Yahoo's search business.

For Jerry Yang and Sue Decker, these are interesting times. And now that they have the team and the structure they say they want , the world will be watching for results. For a good rundown of the changes and what they might suggest, check out the interview I did with CNET News.com Editor in Chief Dan Farber.
