Blog: Google Vs. Yahoo

Blogger Ben Tompkins gives his take on how Yahoo CEO Terry Semel is responding to some of Google's recent competitive thrusts. Not so good, he says.

With Terry Semel's head scheduled for mounting on a pike any day now, it's easy to mock the Yahoo CEO for inaction or indecision or ineffectiveness. Granted, he looks like a slow-footed rookie quarterback facing his first blitz, but consider the rush that Google has been putting on just in the last few days. A sack's better than an interception.

A user-friendly bulleted list of the Google-blitz this week:

* Acquired wiki-maker JotSpot

* On track to outpace U.K. broadcasters in ad revenue for the year

* Updated mobile service to speed Gmail access
