    Yahoo

    When in doubt, delay! That appears to be the strategy at Yahoo, where the company's board has authorized a deadline extension for outsiders to nominate their own slate of directors, which would have been next week. The new deadline will now be 10 days after the company announces the date of its annual shareholder meeting. This clock indeed is ticking...

  • Talk about a confusing report: Dell reports 31 cents a share on $15.99 billion in revenue and at first blush the news seemed almost devastating.
