A lot was written about the appointment of Marissa Mayer as Yahoo CEO and while some people think it’s Yahoo’s last chance I believe Yahoo is not in such a bad state (it still has some really good assets and cash), but it is a big chance to change their image again to a cool company that’s thriving.
I believe Marissa has what it takes to do that after so many years at Google and being so close to the Google owners and leadership team.
It is also a big chance for her to jump to CEO of still one of the biggest and well known tech companies and one that that once about as cool as Google.
Personally, I would love to see Yahoo go back to the top and rival Google, Microsoft and maybe even others like Amazon or Facebook.
It will be interesting to see what changes will Marissa bring to Yahoo: new direction, new products and platforms and maybe even something new in the tech field.
