Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer admitted on Tuesday that her biggest weakness was making too many decisions, saying that she needed to learn to pull back and focus her energy on key strategic moments.
The chief executive has been busy: going on a buying spree including bagging Tumblr for $1bn, transforming Yahoo’s mobile team and appearing in the pages of Vogue.
Google has lost an appeal in a case about its controversial Street View feature, after a panel of judges rejected its claim that wiretapping laws did not apply to its accidental interception of household WiFi data.
The long-running case came to a head on Tuesday when the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals found that private Wi-Fi networks could not be considered radio communication. Google had argued household wireless internet should be considered in the same category as radio, as data “readily accessible to the general public”, which would make it exempt from the Wiretap Act.
