For the first time since taking over as CEO of Yahoo (not to mention having a new baby boy), Marissa Mayer gave an interview to Fortune. Mayer talked about the "pillars" that Yahoo will be building on going forward, including a strong mobile strategy, and possibly an all-in-one app...

Could've said "Yahoo! I'm the creator of the 1st comment". That would've made sense...

She should start with replacing the current writers on Yahoo. So many write about the most irrelevant things, not to mention their writing ability is as bad as the topics they choose.

Doesn't Google already offer an all-in-one application environment (Android) for mobile users? For that matter, doesn't Apple also offer such a thing? I even heard recently that MS is doing a similar thing - something called Windows 8/Windows Phone 8? (Dunno.). Even a company up in Canada called Research in Motion is about to release such an offering.
With so many options, what is Yahoo going to do to differentiate itself?

I think they mean just an App that has all of Yahoo's services included. Instead of having an App for Fantasy Football, Yahoo! Answers, OMG, etc.
IMO, Yahoo needs to cut down on the number of services they are offering so they can focus on being a leader in these offerings.

I think that Mayer's choice not very good when android not included, greater than 70% of popular Android on the globe when Androids are not getting expose to one app idea that is not healty. Is it because that she gave everyone iPhone? or is it when she was got CEO job at Yahoo? Is she using all energy effort to establish for only iOS for now?.... To me, I think it is not good.

She didn't give all employees iPhones. She gave employees the choice between a number of phones, both iPhone and Android, instead of BlackBerry.
Just because she didn't mention Android doesn't mean Yahoo is going to ignore the platform. Mayer is too smart to ignore that big a presence in the mobile market.

An all in one app is something they've needed for a while. Plus shes kinda hot and anyone that argues with me about my second point is a no good communist.

She's ok; I wouldn't say hot. You must not live in California.
