“God bless Tiger,” said Yahoo! CEO and President Carol Bartz during a talk at the UBS Media Conference earlier today. Yahoo! had a major increase in traffic due to the Tiger Woods controversy. Yahoo! Sports had an increase due to all the news, gossip, and the front page. Tiger Woods actually helped Yahoo! meet quarterly expectations. Bartz added that Yahoo! is focusing on improving revenue per search and maintaining their large audience. The company shows about 10 billion ads per day.

    Nice.

    Carol Bartz, like so many women at the 'top of the tree' in the corporate world, plays to the gallery with her 'gee-aren'­t-I-tough'­' observations about the effect of Tiger Woods and Michael Jackson on Yahoo's hits. And while it is hard to have much sympathy for the recent revelations about Woods, I think even the most hard-hearted amongst us would surely agree that Mr Jackson, when alive, endured more than most. Mr Jackson is survived by three young children who clearly will have much to bear ahead of them. Dispensing with the unspoken rules of common decency that apply to the death of somebody's loved one for the superficial sake of appearing hard-assed to her business peers, Bartz compares the loss of their father to a 'gain' for something as inconsequential as the making of money. Sadly, she has revealed herself to be not only lacking in heart, but worse than that – staggeringly cheap.
