AOL Considers Plan to Break Up Operations and Seek Merger With Yahoo

By

Aging Internet giant AOL is actively considering a plan that breaks apart its operations to get the company in shape to merge with Yahoo. (This complex business strategy must be what the Jonas Brothers have been up to in their new post at AOL redesigning the Internet.) So the rumors of an AOL-Yahoo marriage continue to spread, but AOL hasn’t proposed. What are they waiting for? It’s fitting that two early Internet brands would team together to survive the Google era, and they may even have a better chance together than alone. [Reuters]
