AOL plus Yahoo to equal new Oath after Verizon sale

As mentioned in various headlines, it was widely believed that the new Oath division would wipe out brand Yahoo from its existence. "Say goodbye to AOL and Yahoo", reads a headline at The Week.

And to be fair, the blue balls in question are a large colon that comes after the name of the new firm, and before the words "A Verizon company".

Although the Yahoo-Verizon deal is expected to be made final this summer, it could be made official as soon as this month.

His attack initially killed Cochran and two British nationals, and injured dozens of others, at least one of whom has since died. She told the court: "I take a moment to pass my sympathies to the family of Masood, who are also all victims of this incident".

Oath will reportedly serve as a holding company for Yahoo News, Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Finance, and other services with the Yahoo name, as well as house the AOL-owned publications.

What do you think of the Oath name for the merged version of Yahoo and AOL? According to Armstrong, the combined company will have 20 brands serving one billion consumers.

A spokesperson at AOL told Business Insider that Oath would be launched in the summer as a new disruptive company. With lots of initial complications, finally, Yahoo agreed to sell its online operations to the telecom company.

He also said that he answers to nobody but voters, and the issue he briefed Trump on had nothing to do with Russian Federation . The aim, the report said, was partly created to leave a trail of evidence for government investigators.

It's important to note that Verizon isn't purchasing all of Yahoo's assets. There were two massive security breaches affecting more than one billion users, as per the revelations of Yahoo. The acquisition of Yahoo hasn't exactly been smooth sailing with multiple revelations of state-sponsored hacking that compromised billions of user accounts - Verizon has since won a $350 million discount for Yahoo.

Meanwhile, the parts of Yahoo that aren't being acquired by Verizon are also expected to be rebranded.

The Yahoo-Verizon deal is supposed to close in the second quarter of 2017, perhaps on or before April 24.

Trump appeals travel ban ruling
He left in place the section of the order that barred the entry of refugees to the United States for four months. The hearings in Maryland and Hawaii were two of three held Wednesday in federal courts around the country.

The business units from Yahoo which Verizon is not buying, such as 15% of Chinese retailer, Alibaba, and part of Yahoo in Japan will now be known by the name of Altaba. "Over time, if there's brands we can create around Oath, we would think about that".
