Yahoo, Altaba
The most famous brand of silicon valley "Yahoo" is now dead  (not completely) and company renamed its brand to "Altaba". The announcement for re-branding the company was made on Monday, following the sale of its core business to telecom titans Verizon.

UPDATE: Only the investment part of Yahoo that will be renamed ‘Altaba’, while the main brand will retain its name. Only the part of the Yahoo that is being sold to Verizon will be renamed to 'Altaba'.

Currently Yahoo didn't gave any point for re-branding to Altaba, nor it explains what Altaba means. But the new name Altaba looks similar to the "Alibaba", an Chinese internet giants which is  partly owned by Yahoo.

Company CEO Marissa Mayer, the veteran  former Google executive who failed to stand the company and make some turnout will be leaving the company's board, along with the Yahoo Co-founder David Filo.
UPDATE:- Mayer is to step down from its board, but will continue to be CEO.


Last year Yahoo had suffered from major cyber attacks on which company says 500  million users accounts had been stolen by hackers, but later on Yahoo separately acknowledge 1 Billion users were affected on the data breach. It was the one of the worst and biggest data breached of 2016.

Verizon wants to integrate Yahoo’s internet business with fellow, faded dot-com-era giant AOL, which the telecom giant bought last year for $4.4 billion, in order to gain a stronger foothold in the online advertising space.

After the deal Verizon will had a hard task for online marketing as the online market is already taken by Google and Facebook. Bloomberg reported that on 2015, Google and Facebook accounted 64% of all online advertising revenue. 

That was a hard time for Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, to turn the company to a new level as there was a Verizon deal along with the latest biggest data breach.
