Yahoo! -- despite posting a net loss of $303 million in Q4 -- will continue to boost its search engine while also exploring additional means to add value to the company if it is put on the block, new CEO Carol Bartz said during an earnings call. "This is a fantastic Internet property," Bartz said. "It really doesn't deserve everybody trying to pick it and pull it apart." One positive was ad revenue for the quarter, which was flat at $1.59 billion, despite the economic downturn.
