Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer has spoken out publicly for the first time since taking over the company. She is one of the most powerful women in the industry and her views are always heard worldwide.
Jon Fortt reported on her speech saying “No bombshells from Mayer, but she did talk about what Yahoo will, and won’t do, and her own personal priorities. Yahoo has been getting locked out of the mobile app space. Mail is one of Yahoo’s most important web franchises, but id doesn’t translate on smartphones where most people use a native app for email.”
Fortt adds “One area Mayer said she will not touch is Maps.”
Mayer said “I’ve done maps in my former life. Its very expensive, very hard to do well. Apple is finding that out. So we’re not going to do maps, right?”
Kitguru says: A company who are learning from an Apple mistake. It is not often you can say that.
