Mayer is well known as one of the industry's leading consumer Internet executives. By bringing Mayer on board, Yahoo is sending a clear signal: The company is going to push as hard as it can to innovate new products and drive user experience and ad revenue for its properties. Yahoo properties include Yahoo Finance, Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Mobile, Yahoo Mail, and Yahoo Search.
"I am honored and delighted to lead Yahoo, one of the Internet's premier destinations for more than 700 million users," Mayer said. "I look forward to working with the company's dedicated employees to bring innovative products, content, and personalized experiences to users and advertisers all around the world."
A User Experience Guru
At Google, Mayer was most recently responsible for Local, Maps, and Location Services for Google, which includes Google Maps, Google Earth, Zagat, Street View and local search, for both desktop and mobile.
Mayer joined Google in 1999 as its 20th employee and led efforts for many of Google's most recognizable products, including the development of its flagship search product and iconic homepage for more than 10 years.
Mayer also managed some of Google's most successful innovations, launching more than 100 features and products including image, book and product search, toolbar, iGoogle, Google News and Gmail. Indeed, Mayer created much of the "look and feel" of the Google user experience as users know it today.
"Marissa is a well known, visionary leader in user experience and product design and one of Silicon Valley's most exciting strategists in technology development," said Yahoo co-founder David Filo. "I look forward to working with her to enhance Yahoo's product offerings for our over 700 million unique...

22:31 Asteroid strikes cause the Moon's surface to smoothThe lunar surface is marred by impact craters, remnants of the collisions that have occurred over the past 4.5 billion years. The Orientale basin, the Moon's most recently formed sizeable crater, stands out from the rest. The crater, which lies along the southwestern boundary between the near and far sides of the moon, appears as a dark spot ringed by concentric circles of ejecta that reach more than 900 kilometers (560 miles) from the impact location. Researchers now propose that whenever a large body slams into the Moon, seismic waves produced during the impact travel through the solid lunar material, inducing seismic shaking that causes landslides and surface settling.
