Yahoo gives Bartz the ax, Assange goes on the attackBy Dan Tynan
This week's theme: Now you see them, now you don't. Following blockbuster announcements by Google, HP, and Apple in recent weeks, Yahoo joined the crowd by giving 30-month CEO Carol Bartz her walking papers, and AOL capped it by showing TechCrunch's Michael Arrington the door. What else happened? IFA Berlin, Europe's answer to the Consumer Electronics Show, featured the appearances (and disappearances) of several groundbreaking products, as well as the U.S. State Department's enemy No. 1, WikiLeaks' Julian Assange.
