Memories with Yahoo both as an user and as an ex-employee

It’s again proved that any business go down; no matter how big or how historical they are. The company that has introduced internet to the world,Yahoo! has last night announced that Verizon to acquire Yahoo!’s operating business for about $4.8bn. Some of my memories with Yahoo!

But when I submit, I was prompted that only one passenger can be booked. That gave me a surprise. There could be situations that…

For last 3 days, our internet is not working. When we have first reported, as usual, they have registered a complaint and said it will be resolved within 24 hours. We have waited for almost 32 hours, the problem is not resolved nor anyone has contacted us.

After 10 hours, there was still no resolution nor any communication from them. Again we have called up the…
