Yahoo's delightfully potty-mouthed CEO dropped another one of her famous F-bombs on the Wall Street Journal's Kara Swisher at the D conference today. The Journal's been promoting the incident online, but can't seem to bring itself to air video of the cussing.

After thousands of layoffs last year, Yahoo's gearing up to cut more staff. Here's an idea: Why not trim outrageous spending first? One Yahoo engineer has helpfully, if unwittingly, shown where to start.
It's the reorg to end all reorgs! Under widely loathed former management, Yahoo became famous for its dumb corporate reshufflings. New CEO Carol Bartz, a lovably profane taskmistress, is aiming to undo their mess.
