Yahoo CEO Mayer talks mobile strategy, design approach

Chris Kanaracus | Nov. 21, 2013
Yahoo is taking a "mobile first" approach to its product strategy, to the point where mobility could reinvent the company, according to CEO Marissa Mayer.

Benioff and Mayer's conversation was marked by an unexpected moment, when a group of people apparently protesting against Walmart interrupted the presentation with chants. Mayer sits on Walmart's board.

"If you want to do a protest you can do it outside, and it's better if you split it up that way so when that group gets arrested the other one can start," Benioff joked, comparing the strategy to the way software systems are made redundant for reliability in the event of a failure.
