Thread: Google’s Marissa Mayer Tapped as Yahoo’s Chief

    Default Google’s Marissa Mayer Tapped as Yahoo’s Chief


    The thing that made me take notice was:
    Ms. Mayer, 37, had for years been responsible for the look and feel of Google’s most popular products: the famously unadorned white search homepage, Gmail, Google News and Google Images.
    So, what do you think? Will yahoo start to become successful again? The CEO position has been a revolving door of late.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I don't know how accurate it is to claim she was solely responsible for all of that, it seems more likely that she just lorded over people who were and took responsibility for it.

    Yahoo is a sinking ship, or at least a very leaky one.
    To steal a quote from Reddit:

    "Yahoo board of directors: "Guys, we're failing because we don't have a business model."

    Some genius: "Let's hire one!" "
