Yahoo has ushered in Marissa Mayer as its new CEO with a third-quarter earnings report that topped analyst estimates.
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer gave birth to a boy late Sunday, casting a spotlight on her ability to steer the struggling Internet company in a new direction while adjusting to the challenges of being a first-time mother.
Yahoo has closed a $7.6 billion deal that includes selling half its stake in rapidly growing Chinese company Alibaba Group.
Some of the more high-profile members of Silicon Valley’s social and financial scenes are writing big checks in support of the proposition that would abolish capital punishment in California, dwarfing the opposition’s fundraising in the process.
The brother of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has been sentenced to three years of probation following his arrest for allegedly beating his former girlfriend.
“Another piece of good news today,” tweeted the expectant mom, announcing to her online followers that she and her husband were awaiting a baby boy.
Yahoo turned in another lackluster performance in the second quarter.
Yahoo is turning to its longtime nemesis to fix everything that has gone wrong while Google Inc. has been cementing its position as the Internet’s most powerful company.
