Upon realizing that the new CEO of Yahoo!, Marissa Mayer, was a key figure in Google, I believe that this new administration will influence Yahoo! in a positive direction. In terms of popularity, Google beats Yahoo!. However, Yahoo! and Google may do some tandem projects together, including a revamped mail interface, better Internet searching options, among other ideas. With Mayer’s connections to Google, I believe that Yahoo! will only be able to prosper in the future of computing and information.
