On this week's EIC squared podcast, Dan and I talk the executive revolving door at Yahoo, the Firefox 3 launch, Bill Gates' last week at Microsoft (sort of) and my Millennial fatigue.

First up, it's not an EIC podcast without some Yahoo chatter. The latest: Everyone is leaving. I maintain Yahoo's board is a mess. And Dan notes that Jerry Yang is likely to be a sacrificial lamb.

Meanwhile, it was a big week for Firefox 3 with 8 million downloads in 24 hours (all CNET, ZDNet coverage). There was a little bit of a rough start, but Mozilla recovered nicely. And it didn't take long for hackers to target the latest browser.

And finally, we discuss my rant about Millennial. Will the corporate world be afflicted with attention deficit disorder. Probably.

Topics: Browser, Microsoft
