Illustration by David Schwen. According to Hosanagar, the issue was partly that Yahoo could never make up its mind whether it was a tech company or a media company. Moreover, Verizon will face stiff competition from Google, Facebook and Twitter, which are all moving aggressively into digital video, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

A Limited Life Span for Internet Companies
Libert notes that in the classic business book In Search of Excellencethe authors made a case for why sticking to the tried-and-true was critical to success.
Yahoo collapsed under its own weight.
Combined, they count more than one billion monthly active users, including million monthly active mobile users. Verizon also plans to use its programming relationships with the NFL, NBA and others to boost its combined content offerings even more.
Yahoo will retain its stakes in Alibaba and Yahoo Japan and cash reserves. The company is changing its name once the deal closes in early Mayer plans to stay with the company at least through this next chapter of its life. In addition, from a pure revenue side, Yahoo owning parts of Alibaba provides Verizon a global opportunity for its network.

Although reducing features generally has a negative impact on the short-term revenue of the application owner,  long-term revenue loss can be avoided. The technique is inspired by brownouts in power gridswhich consists in reducing the power grid's voltage in case electricity demand exceeds production. Some consumers, such as incandescent light bulbs, will dim — hence originating the term — and draw less power, thus helping match demand with production.
Similarly, a brownout application helps match its computing capacity requirements to what is available on the target infrastructure. Brownout is complementing elasticity. The former can help the application withstand short-term capacity shortage, but does so without changing the capacity available to the application.
