Yahoo And Icahn Play Nice…. I Guess.

This press release just crossed the wires. It seems that there is peace between Yahoo and Carl Icahn now that’s it’s official that his two picks are on the Yahoo board. Jerry Yang even has a few nice things to say:

“No other company in the Internet space has our unique combination of a global brand, the industrys best talent, innovative technologies and exceptional assets; strengths we believe will help us take advantage of the opportunities we see ahead. I look forward to working together with Frank, John, and the rest of our board to continue the progress weve made on our strategy to be the starting point for the most Internet users, a must buy for the most advertisers, and to develop the worlds most open platforms.

Whatever. Sadly, this won’t keep Yahoo out of the news for all the wrong reasons. But at least one of those reasons won’t be Carl Icahn.
