Devastating One-Liner About Yahoo Sighted!

Posted by: Jon Fine on July 27, 2007

(From a recent informal meeting with a highly-placed digital executive who doesn’t work for any of the below companies.)

Me: But why isn’t it OK for Yahoo to be #2 to Google in search?

The Other Person: Because there is no #2 to eBay.


(Well, I said nothing, because Mr./Ms. Unnamed Exec had a good point. Or did I miss the chance to say something in response?)
