AOL CEO Tim Armstrong revealed the new name of a combined merge of AOL and Yahoo following Verizon's acquisition of Yahoo, and it makes no sense. Mayer will step down from the board of that company once the sale is complete. "We'll put people and brands - ours and yours - first".
Yahoo as we know it may be done.
