Yahoo! has ambitious plans for the next three years: 1 billion users

Asked to be more specific about those internal goals, Irving declined to tell the audience more details.

“Irving said there are internal goals that the company will use to measure its success, but he declined to share them with reporters,” says VentureBeat.

However, TechCrunch heard from a source close to Yahoo: an increase in the number of unique visitors to Yahoo properties from today’s 622 million to a cool 1 billion. And an increase in overall Yahoo revenue from last year’s $6.5 billion to a whopping $10 billion.

Michael Arrington, founder of TechCrunch, believes Yahoo’s goals are not doable:

“Doable? Not a chance. Well, maybe on the user number. They grew 9% over the last year in unique users according to Comscore. If they keep that up they’ll be at around 800 million, and I guess they could buy their way to a billion buy buying WordPress, Glam and/or Myspace, each with about 165 million unique monthly visitors. But short of some sort of massively popular new product, 1 billion unique visitors isn’t going to happen.

“The revenue target is even less likely. 2008 revenue was $7.2 billion, dipping down to $6.5 billion last year. 2010 looks flat v. 2009 so far. “

Tiger Woods is sad after the divorce

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

“It’s a sad time in our lives. And we’re looking forward to how we can help our kids the best way we possibly can. And that’s the most important thing.”

When a reporter asked Woods if he still loves Elin Nordegren, he didn’t answer, instead repeating, “That’s the most important thing.”

Asked if he was “relieved” with the split, Woods paused. “I don’t think that’s the word,” he says. “I think it’s just more sadness. Because I don’t think you ever – you don’t ever go into a marriage looking to get divorced. That’s the thing. That’s why it is sad.”

“My actions certainly led us to this decision,” he said. “And I’ve certainly made a lot of errors in my life and that’s something I’m going to have to live with.”

After saying that the divorce “was a lot more difficult than I was letting on,” Woods once again addressed the People interview. “I certainly understand that she is sad,” he said. “And I feel the same way.”
