You can't have everything. Reality can be tough to face.

Interviewing Scully about the current state of Apple says more about the sad state of reporting by CNBC than it does about Apple.

In fact, considering the job he did, I would assume the opposite of his statements.

OP, why don't you spend more time on CNN where they link nothing but positive stories about Apple. You will be happier.

So either get over the 90s and find a new news source or get over it.

I dont use it as my news source but just my home page. When I go to find "news" I go to more balanced news sources and CNN and BBC News is one of those sources. I just find it funny the amount of negative stories from forbes aswell.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/darcytra...rtner=yahootix

is an example.

I quit using Yahoo because so many of their links led to untrustworthy sites. Click on a movie review and get a warning it is an untrustworthy site. I just dumped the whole site off my computer. When they send out their news, I have it go to junk mail and there is no problem. I use Apple products that work for me. I'm not in the market so I really don't care about how the stock is running. They are merely a company doing business well, and make some products I find useful. Why all the angst?

I hate the financial sites yahoo links to. Most of it's click bait and doesn't provide any real information. Business insider is one of the worst.

I haven't used Yahoo in ages, either.

More importantly, why do you care? Does it make your battery life shorter or something?

The are, and they have a stellar CEO and she's doing all she can to make it better. Their lack of relevance in last 6-8 years is hard to overcome though.

The sad thing is I would much rather go to Fox News than Yahoo. I find Yahoo to be the worst news site on-line.

I would have to disagree but that's my opinion . I find Yahoo news reporting / ethics very questionable.

Has Yahoo employees do anything like/worse than going around a convention turning other companies displays off while they are presenting? Do they buy stolen prototypes? Do they break embargoes just to be first to post pictures of a car?
