Blog: Google Vs. Yahoo

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.

* Acquired wiki-maker JotSpot

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

* Updated mobile service to speed Gmail access
