Yesterday we wrote, Yahoo! Gives Up Search Race: Admits Defeat to Google which basically said that Yahoo! is ok with being number two in terms of the market share race, and doesn't expect to beat Google out any time soon.
The Yahoo! Search team replied to that at the Yahoo! Search Blog saying Are you kidding?!
This commitment to being the best should be crystal clear from our investments in talented people, research, innovation and new products. Believe it or not, we are still in the early days of search. As all of us at Yahoo! agree, we're in it for the long haul, and we're in it to win.

So what is up with Yahoo!'s CFO?
