Marissa Mayer

“Newly appointed Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is giving her entire staff new iPhones, which has to burn her former Google colleagues a little,” Rebecca Greenfield reports for The Atlantic Wire.

“She could have picked an Android device for the ten thousand-plus people who work at the company. But she didn’t, instead suggesting spending a couple million on the Apple product, according to Business Insider’s Nicholas Carlson,” Greenfield reports. “Mayer herself had an iPhone when she worked at Google, notes Carlson, so maybe it’s not that surprising. “

Greenfield reports, “By forgoing Android devices, though, Mayer is showing that her loyalties are no longer with Google.”

MacDailyNews Take: Perhaps she just wants the best possible smartphones for her employees.
