    I got to admit I like her hire. The Child Immigration Crisis story was interesting. I've been a critic of Marissa, but I think this was a good hire. Would still like to see more advertising, though.

    You make it sound like international devlopment was easy.
    Yum has executed better in China than any other USA company.

    He took over around the year 2000 and the stock was split adjusted $6. Today the stock is $76. The return on my investment is around 1100%
    He weathered many storms at YUM and has done a great job.
    Good luck to Mr Novak. Wish I invested 10k rather than 1k

    MM is on track to get YHOO where it belongs

    So far, nothing has translated into revenue.
    A columnist watched Yahoo SNL for 1 hr and saw no ads.

  • Of course, in other circumstances that would suggest buying shares of Liberty as a beneficiary of the acquisition but not in this case. Now here's where Malone's penchant for complicated deals involving stock comes in.

    "Liberty Media is creating a new class of stock, Liberty C, which will trade under the symbol LMCC," Cramer explained.

    "The company's current shareholders will get 230 million LMCC shares via a 2 for 1 stock dividend. But more important, Liberty will exchange its 460 million of these new C-shares for the rest of Sirius-XM, with one share of Sirius being worth 0.076 shares of Liberty-C. In other words, for every 131 or so shares of Sirius you own, you'll get one share in the new class of Liberty Media's stock."

    Essentially, Cramer believes buying Siruis now gets investors in on the ground floor of the new Liberty C shares.

    That's desirable because Liberty Media management is forming an independent special committee to review the terms of the deal and then vote on it.

    "And I think the independent committee could force Liberty to pay more for Sirius than what they're currently offering," Cramer speculated. "Not that long ago you had SiriusXM trading at $4.18 a share—that's 9% higher than where it is now—and some analysts have been saying it's worth as much #$%$ So I wouldn't be at all surprised if Liberty is forced to pay close to Sirius' recent highs."

    Therefore buying Sirius now would make investors the beneficiary of a higher offer. And then after the acquisition is completed the newly formed Liberty C shares allow investors to benefit from the synergies that Cramer believes will follow.

    "After the deal closes, all of your Sirius shares will become Liberty Media Class-C shares, and the SiriusXM business will represent around 70% of Liberty Media's operational value. I think Liberty will be able to do a better job of running the satellite radio biz—making it grow faster and generate massive amounts of cash," Cramer said.

    Google Reuters Headline: "Nader slams Malone's 'lowball' Sirius "
    I am not a fan of Nader, but he happens to be a shareholder of Sirius.....which, in this case, can help us minority owners.

    The more I read about Alibaba, the more I think they have tremendous potential to grow.
    And the less I really like Marissa.

    Yahoo Outpaces Google In Mobile Search

    So that means out of all of yahoo's searches, 31% of them come from Mobile. Which is silly to compare with Google. Google gets, out of all its searches, 30% of them from mobile.
    Yahoo has alot less searches then google.

    Yahoo Outpaces Google In Mobile Search

    Yahoo now sees 31% of its searches on mobile devices, slightly outpacing Google at 30%. Estimates include hidden Apple iOS visits related to the company's clients.

    The Rimm-Kaufman Group Q3 Digital Marketing Report analyzes paid search, organic search and social, comparison shopping engines and attribution associated with RKG clients.

    Organic searches continue to become more interesting for marketers as Google has built barriers preventing marketers from seeing search query keyword data. Missing or not, provided search query share rose at the end of Q3 to reach 80%, as Google pushed consumers toward secure searches -- regardless of their browser or log-in status.

    Bing's share of organic search visits rose to 10.5% in Q3, up from 10.1% sequentially. Yahoo's share slipped slightly to 9.1%, while Google's rose a bit to 78.1%.

    Smartphones and tablets now account for 28% of organic search visits, led by the iPad at 10%. Overall, iOS devices generated 19% of organic search visits in Q3. Android accounted for 8%, and other mobile devices 1%, per the RKG report.

    Apple iOS 6 continues to lead, with 11% of Google organic searches being wrongly attributed by Web analytics in Q3 despite an increase in the Web traffic identified properly. The report notes that iOS 7 does not appear to suffer from the same problem. iOS devices accounted for an estimated 19% of organic search visits in Q3.

    The Internet Advertising Bureau released mobile numbers Wednesday estimating mobile ad revenue at $3 billion in the first half of 2013, up 145% from $1.2 billion in the year-ago period. Search revenue in the first half of 2013 reached $8.7 billion -- up 7% from $8.1 billion in the first half of 2012, per the IAB.

    Social also continues to make an impact. In Q3, a bit more than 0.8% of mobile site visits were generated by social sites. Overall, Facebook's share of social referrals to Web sites came in at 52% in Q3, while Pinterest accounted for 14% and Google+ generating about 1% of social

    Sirius CFO wants to retain Howard???

    I really don't care if people vote me up or down. The fact is, he has more listeners than any other channel on Sirius. New programming does not equal listeners. Guaranteed about 3 million people cancel their subscription when he leaves.
    Don't judge Stern by whether you like him or not. Judge him by his numbers. And he's a juggernaut

    As a longtime fan of Howard, he's been horrible since he signed this latest contract. He sounds like he's coasting. And he's on 2 to 3 days a week with the rest repeats.
    That said, he's probably still the most listened to station by far on Sirius despite all of the grumbling of fans.
    You'd probably lose around 3 million subscribers if he left.
