Yahoo, We Hardly Knew You

Headline news:

"Marissa Mayer leaving Yahoo board after sale to Verizon; Yahoo will change name to Altaba"

Altaba? Is that supposed to sound like all these other "alt" things? Is it just me, or do a lot of these other alt things seem like they aren't all that different, just slightly repackaged versions of the old things?

I take the prefix "alt"
With a healthy dash of salt.

I'm skeptical. That's my fault.
