Something to do with Yellow Pages not being printed in physical form anymore?

I remember the stock price chart. It kept going down, and punters kept buying. It dropped some 95% from the highs, and then they were rebranded has HIBU and then poof - the shares were no more. People lost ££££s

If anyone is bored then can read the old YELL thread- last post talks about dropping from £6 to 0.3p And people still hoped for a recovery.

Its probably in recycling nearest where the person paid £1 a copy to deliver it lives....

We got one last year. I marvelled at the skinniness before putting it in the recycling box.

Talk about missing an open goal. YO had contacts, tge cash flow and ... fucked up.

I think the yellow pages is a textbook example of a solid company being overtaken by new technology. Once Google came out they basically had no chance.

They had 15 years of chances esp. the first 10 years.

It goes to show how a companies management are useless.

Look at GE.

Paid billions out to management and advisors. Fucking useless. Equity is worthless.

Good. Another unneeded paper publication will not be put in my letterbox again. When I had a paper recycling bin I put the yellow pages in that. No paper recycling here for over five years now despite millions being spent by local councils on recycling waste!

^ I am starting to believe in the broken window fallacy. More junk mail helps the economy.

Pay someone to dig a hole and then pay someone else to fill it again. The economy wins.

Why do I say this?

These bus stops with glass shelters, year in year out, the glass gets broken and then they are replaced. No one learns anything, just replace,....vandals break them....then replace the glass.....and so on. This has been going on for 30 years! But millions have gone through the GDP figures!

If Yell uk is the same as the USA one then they are doing well online if you Google any American business etc. 

You can use them to fill in potholes , don't think they're thick enough now.
