Mobile a top priority for Yahoo in 2013, Mayer says

Zach Miners | April 17, 2013
Yahoo wants to accelerate its development of mobile products geared toward delivery of personalized content, CEO Marissa Mayer said Tuesday, as the company works to stay relevant in a world where smartphones and tablets are becoming dominant.

Acquisitions for talent, or "acquihires," are also on the table, the company said, when pressed by analysts to explain whether it would develop new products internally as well.

Yahoo did suggest that its mobile apps and services will be closely aligned with the top things people already do on their mobile devices: Checking email, the weather and news; getting sports scores; playing games; sharing photos; group messaging; and getting financial or stock information.

"That's almost in exact correlation with Yahoo's business and product line," Mayer said.
