    Seems like a major step down in prestige. I can't believe money is the sole motivating factor. Most people don't change jobs just for the bigger paycheck but other issues with their current position, like loss of control, or a boss who's overly demanding etc.

    In Pogue's case, I'm surprised, especially given where I think Yahoo is heading, i.e., boarding the Titanic when its already taking on water

    Imagining that money is not the sole factor, it's noble he's jumping into a company like Yahoo! to try an give it something good, but if Marissa controls the company like she designs a logo he's in deep trouble.
