Yahoo Claims Its Brand Will Still Exist, Will Operate Under 'Oath' Division

One incredibly bland corporate name. CFO Ken Goldman is also departing, although on his own steam as has been expected since the Verizon-owned Oath is lousy with financial types in NY.

An AOL spokeswoman told Business Insider on Monday that the company has plans to launch Oath in the coming months. Combined the 25-plus media and technology brands reach more than 1 billion people.

"The company is also plugging the new name with the hashtag "#TakeTheOath", which sounds a bit, well, cultish.

"You can bet we will be launching one of the most disruptive brand companies in digital", AOL said in a statement. Armstrong also said we'll soon "see something special" on Oath.com, which now appears to be owned by someone else. In 2014, AOL also reported a security breach of its email service that's believed to have affected almost a half million accounts. The publication did try to get comment on the specific changes, but Yahoo declined to comment.

"For me personally, I'm planning to stay", Mayer said last July.

When the Pacers call timeout, the camera panned to Lebron James and Tristan Thompson in a very heated conversation. You just try to slow them down."These guys are multiple All-Stars and great players and you can't stop "em".

The deal was originally worth $350 million more than what it's valued at now, before several Yahoo security breaches were disclosed, according to Tech Crunch. Verizon's goal was to use Yahoo's billion users to build an online advertising powerhouse to rival Google and Facebook.

Last month, the Department of Justice indicted four individuals, including two offices of the Russian Federal Security Service, in connection with the Yahoo hack. Yahoo's board also opted not to award Mayer her cash bonus. It should be interesting to see where the Oath brand goes and how Yahoo and AOL are reformed and reimagined.

Yahoo as we know it may be done.

Well, the latest disaster of a media brand name is at least a real word - albeit one that appears to have been selected at random from a dictionary.
