  • 'Arkham Asylum' Explores Batman's Angry Side Thursday, 28 May 2009 | 4:05 PM ET

    Yahoo CEO, Carol Bartz

    When Carol Bartz took over as CEO a few months ago, I like everyone else was intrigued about how she would turn this struggling company around.

In short, I got exactly what Yahoo hasn't been, but has so desperately needed.
