More than 2 weeks ago, Steve Jobs said that he’s resigning as Apple’s CEO. Now another high-profile tech company is in the news, Yahoo’s CEO (ex-CEO) Carol Bartz was fired by Yahoo’s Chairman of the Board and what’s worst the axing was done over the phone.
After the phone-axing-conversation, Carol sent out her last email memo to all Yahoo employees.
I am very sad to tell you that I’ve just been fired over the phone by Yahoo’s Chairman of the Board. It has been my pleasure to work with all of you and I wish you only the best going forward.

Yahoo’s CFO Tim Morse will be the new CEO, if this is gonna be a long term gig, only Yahoo’s Chairman of the Board knows and if the Tech industry will cry for her.. well who knows!!!
