    Thanks for catching that and reporting Matt. Given Marissa’s ‘local’ roots at Google, I was wondering how she’d handle local at Yahoo.

    Re-affirms the value of local, but that it requires strong assets and cohesive strategy. Marissa knows this well and isn’t looking to re-invent that wheel.

    I don’t buy that they aren’t investing in local; moreover they are taking it in a new direction by getting half the company dedicated to mobile. It’s good forward thinking; but will be hard to pull off being a top “App” since those markets are already controlled by Apple, Google, and distantly MSFT.

    Perhaps they’re considering acquisitions/mergers & integration rather than development/evolution of their own local properties.
