Yahoo CEO Speculation Continues Unabated

Yahoo’s CEO guessing game to replace Jerry Yang continues unabated.  First it was Jon Miller of AOL, then Arun SarinJohn Chapple, former CEO of VodaPhone, and on and on.  According to Nicholas Carlson of Silicon Alley Insider the latest name to resurface is John Chapple, the former Nextel CEO and ally of Carl Icahn.   According to Carlson,

Everyone we’ve talked to recently is betting on former Nextel CEO John Chapple, who joined the board with Carl Icahn in August.
