Marissa Mayer's Yahoo Keynote: Web, Apps, Celebs and Shots at Google
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's first-ever keynote address at International CES Tuesday was mostly about mobile apps, content, and illustrating the different ways the software and Internet company interfaces with the consumer electronics world.
The high-profile Mayer, the first female CES keynoter in several years, began by speaking about how the company's future (and present) are in the mobile sphere. Yahoo, Mayer said, is now about "making the world's daily habits inspiring and entertaining."
A big part of this, she said, is content. Mayer first welcomed news mainstay Katie Couric, who will soon launch a new online talk show through Yahoo.
