Yahoo announces plans to kill off Games, Livetext, Boss, and more regional sites

If you can’t sell them, kill them.

It seems that Marissa Mayer hasn’t done much to save Yahoo other than keep it afloat. There was a time that Yahoo was the leader in content portals, and now it’s falling behind. While I’m sure that these are cuts that were made due to long-term performance issues, it still seems a shame the Yahoo continues to be a sinking ship. Yahoo–you’ve got some great content creators like Katie Couric and David Pogue. Get more people like that on board, and make Yahoo valuable again! 

What do you think? Am I wrong for dissing Mayer? Or is this the sensible thing to do? What do you think Yahoo should do to rebuild its brand? Include your comments below!
