Story Text:

Yahoo! have lost their top labs guy to MSN but have already replaced him and announced plans to expand the scope of the department...

Gary Flake has moved to MSN as a "distinguished engineer", whatever that may be, and has been replaced with Usama Fayyad who will head up the expansion of Yahoo! Labs in the areas of search and information navigation, social media, community, personalization, and mobility.

The search industry is somewhat incestuous, as you can see...
