Handling the final copies of the magazine to the publisher officially ends my job as the layout artist. I really enjoyed styling the magazine cover and some pages in the magazine. I would like to thank Selina Garcia (BFA AM) and Denise Arandia (BS MIS) for helping me do my job. Congratulations to the super-dooper-happy-artistic people :D
Now what's next?
|Graph showing the stocks of Yahoo! from mid-2005 until mid-2010|
Microsoft would pay $44.6 billion to Yahoo! not only to enhance online advertising but also to have a competitive edge to Microsoft's foreseen rival, Google. The problem with this is that Yahoo! uses open source softwares in enhancing their services while Microsoft uses paid softwares. Revising Yahoo! would put David and Jerry's efforts to waste.
Regarding the Google-Yahoo! deal, it was not made to merge both companies but to enhance both companies. Yahoo! has been using email features and services of Google. Last 2008, Yahoo! had used Google AdSense to its[Yahoo!] search engine. That had attracted consumers. Unfortunately, this deal was cut.
For our next project in Introduction to Management Information Systems (MIS101), we are asked to give a solution to the bankruptcy of Yahoo using different business competitive strategies: Cost Leadership, Differentiation, Innovation, Growth, and Alliance strategies.
I chose to discuss the alliance possibilities in Yahoo!. I will look for some notable deals made with other companies and compare the effect of it to the stocks and profit of Yahoo!. In that way, I may have suggested what trend should be continued.
For this post, I give you Parachutes and Airplanes by David Archuleta from the album Other Side of The Down.
