In all fairness, I would say Yahoo was already entering into a death spiral when Marissa came on board. I don't see how anyone thought the company could have been saved at that point and figured her real job was to make the company look good enough to get it sold.

She was probably doing as good as anyone else until the news of the email hacks came out.

From my perspective it looks like a significant percentage FB users share links without bothering to read the linked page or considering it as a valid source. They simple share things based on emotion. I have seen this from politically "charged" people on both sides. So either my FB social network behavior is rare or a typical. I strongly suspect it is the later and FB knows it.

I have owned two Nexus7 tablets. I still have the second one and use it every day. It is getting a bit old but I haven't replaced it because they stopped making the 7 in favor of the larger 9 which is too expensive. The 7 was a great bloat-free device at a great price ($200 ish). I was hoping Google would reintroduce the 7 but I guess those hopes are lost. Time to start looking at some replacement candidates. Suggestions?
