On this week's EIC squared Dan and I talk Yahoo's new CEO, Verizon Wireless and the BlackBerry Storm, CES and pushing gadgets in a down economy.

First, the big news of the week was Jerry Yang and his move to step down as CEO of Yahoo. A lot of speculation revolves around who will become CEO. I said that the pick will reveal a lot about Yahoo's intentions. We both agreed that it's highly likely that Yahoo's search unit will be sold to Microsoft. After all, Microsoft is already poaching Yahoo talent.

The other item of note is the BlackBerry Storm. Both of us played with it a little and generally liked it. The reviews (ZDNet, CNET, Techmeme) are everywhere.

And finally we talked about a few new gadgets Dan scoped out this week ahead of CES in January. The big question is what will the pitch look like and will consumers bite.
