Yahoo money gets within cooee

Seek, which hosts more than 28,000 job advertisements, will be Yahoo's principal supplier of employment listings, although Tony Faure, Yahoo's local MD, maintained the deal would not give the internet company exclusive rights to Seek content.

Faure said Yahoo currently had around 30 arrangements with content providers, including the ABC and Reuters, but he stressed that deals with Australian companies had not previously incurred any investment from Yahoo. "It's a matter of looking at each business arrangement you want to make on a case-by-case basis," he explained.

Faure said Seek would benefit from the cash injection, which would in turn increase Yahoo's market power.

Meanwhile, Paul Bassat, CEO of Australia and New Zealand-based Seek, maintained his company had no immediate plans to expand its operations outside Australia and New Zealand, despite Yahoo's international presence. Instead, he said his company would use the Yahoo cash injection to provide as many Australian and New Zealand site visitors with as many job vacancy advertisements as possible.

Faure said Yahoo would consider making further investments outside the US, but did not specify any imminent deals.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
