Will the change of management at Yahoo herald a new round in the Internet search wars?
Analysts have speculated that new CEO Jerry Yang will start to close the gap that has opened between Yahoo and Google, by identifying Internet services that are useful to users.
However, while Google has clearly taken the lead in the search arena, others predict that Yahoo is actually in a healthier position because of its wide array of content services that it offers in addition to search.
On Monday, Yang told Yahoo employees that the company could still close the gap in the search market, but needs to find ways to differentiate itself.
Meanwhile News Corp could be mulling a deal whereby it will swap MySpace for a 25% stake in Yahoo, according to The Times.
The group bought MySpace in 2005 for $580-million, and it's worth about $37-billion today.
