Twenty-one years after its incorporation and 16 years after its stock peak, Yahoo sold for 96% less than its value on January 3, 2000, when it had closed at an all-time high of $118.75 per share, resulting in a market capitalization of $120 billion. Wall Street valued Yahoo!, at that time in business less than six years, higher than it did Disney, News Corporation, and Comcast combined. At the end of 2016, the top seven businesses on the list of the highest-valued companies in the world by market capitalization include Apple at #1, Alphabet (Google´s Parent Company) at #2, Amazon.com at #5, and Facebook at #7. Those companies combined are valued in excess of $2 trillion more than the price Verizon paid to acquire Yahoo! Yahoo!´s story is one of missed strategies, failed opportunities, and poor execution. Early decisions to de-emphasize search features, undervalue Google, and overplay Yahoo´s hand in the Facebook negotiations haunted the rest of the company´s existence. In addition, factors outside of Yahoo´s control - most notably how irrational expectations of Wall Street created an environment where short-term decisions were made at the expense of the long-term good. 1.

Jeder kennt ihn, den Begriff Die 7 Weltwunder. Aber jetzt mal Hand aufs Herz – wer bekommt alle 7 Weltwunder der Antike noch zusammen, ohne Herrn Google dabei um Hilfe bitten zu müssen? Damit Sie jetzt nicht extra gleich wieder die Lektüre aus der Hand legen müssen – hier die Liste der 7 Weltwunder der Antike: • Die hängenden Gärten der Semiramis zu Babylon • Der Koloss von Rhodos • Das Grab des Königs Mausolos II zu Halikarnassos • Der Leuchtturm auf der Insel Pharos vor Alexandria • Die Pyramiden von Gizeh in Ägypten • Der Tempel der Artemis in Ephesos • Die Zeusstatue des Phidias von Olympia Na, wie viele hätten Sie aus dem Stand gewusst? Die Pyramiden von Gizeh? Den Koloss von Rhodos vielleicht noch? Und da hört´s bei den meisten auch schon wieder auf. Das hat auch einen ziemlich einfachen Grund: Nur noch eins dieser 7 antiken Weltwunder ist heute noch zu bewundern, nämlich die Pyramiden von Gizeh. Alle anderen Weltwunder wurden durch Erdbeben und Kriege im Laufe der Geschichte zerstört. Es gibt auch keine Fotos von ihnen – außer von den Pryamiden in Gizeh natürlich - sondern nur bildhafte, teils recht fantasievolle Darstellungen. Da ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass diese einst imposantesten Bauwerke der bekannten Welt langsam aber sicher in Vergessenheit geraten. Der Schweizer Bernhard Weber setzte es sich kurz vor der Jahrtausendwende daher in den Kopf, eine Initiative zu starten, welche die Völker der Erde etwas näher zusmmanebringen sollte. So gab er 1998 den Startschuss dazu, dass möglichst viele Menschen weltweit darüber entscheiden sollten, welche noch existierenden Bauwerke die neuen 7 Weltwunder sind. Theoretisch konnte jeder Mensch auf jedem Kontinent mit abstimmen. Die Wahl erfolgte in drei Phasen. In der ersten Phase stimmten über 20 Millionen Menschen per Internet ab. 1. Sprache: Deutsch.
