Verizon Cuts Better Deal for Breach-Battered Yahoo

Verizon and Yahoo on Tuesday announced new terms for the acquisition deal they inked last summer. Verizon will pay $350 million less than the original contract price, which places the new value of the deal at $4.48 billion. Yahoo will be responsible for 50 percent of any breach-related cash liabilities incurred as a result of non-SEC government investigations and third-party litigation, under the new agreement. Yahoo will be fully responsible for any liabilities resulting from shareholder lawsuits and SEC investigations. The acquisition still “makes strategic sense,” said Verizon EVP Marni Waldon.

WhatsApp Shaves Off a Little More Privacy

WhatsApp on Thursday announced an update to its terms and privacy policy — the first in four years.

However, WhatsApp will begin to share some personal details about its 1 billion users — such as phone numbers and other data — with Facebook, its parent company. The information sharing will permit better tracking of basic metrics.

Fire, Aim, Ready: Is Your Marketing Approach on Target?

Business-to-business marketers know what customers want, in general terms, from initial contacts with the people they buy from. It’s taken awhile, but through trial, error, some more error and eventually some actual thought, the mystery has been solved. Before I give it away, just ask yourself what you want in any communication from anyone when it comes to a business issue. What business issue? Any issue — they usually present themselves as problems. What do you want? Something that helps you solve that problem.

Google Brings Hamster-Eating Into Sticks-and-Stones Brawl With News Corp.

News Corp. and Google have lashed out at each other as the EU reconsiders the terms of its proposed antitrust settlement with the latter. News Corp. essentially accused Google of nefarious behavior in a letter to the European Competition Commissioner over the EU’s proposed antitrust settlement with Google. Perhaps the irony of the situation hit Google hard — News Corp., after all, is not known for its scrupulous adherence to ethics.
Google responded by saying Murdoch was accusing it of eating his hamster, a reference to a 1989 tabloid story.
