Earlier this year, Dr. Qi Lu left his role as Executive Vice President of Search and Advertising Technology at Yahoo in the aftermath of the failed Microsoft acquisition for the Sunnyvale search engine.
Now, Microsoft is bringing Lu on president of the Online Services Group. A couple weeks ago, it was confirmed that Yahoo's VP of Search Technology, Sean Suchter, was heading to Microsoft.
I'm starting to actually believe Steve Ballmer's insistence that he's not coming back around to pick up Yahoo at a reduced price. Why buy a company when you've snagged two of its top talents?
