She should go for the obvious choice which is her first choice.

What do you mean she should choice? I think it's really cool the employees get choices.

I really think you should edit your first sentence. It sort-of makes me cringe because it doesn't make any sense.

There must be a bunch of people out there that are either illiterate or just really bad at grammar. The line "What do you mean she should choice?" does not make any sense. The only way the sentence would make sense is if you said: "What do you mean she should CHOOSE?" or "What do you mean she should go for the first choice?".

Yeah by the time I caught that I couldn't edit it. Obviously you still got it. You know what I meant and it did make sense. You're just a d**k. No likes a Nazi, spelling, grammar, or otherwise.

Why the iPhone? It has a sub-HD 4" screen, lacks NFC, has a small battery, can't do simultaneous voice and data on Verizon or Sprint, lacks expandable storage, has a proprietary connector and allows little customization.

Take that back, that was very iDiSiNgenuous of you. iPhone 5 has added a fourth homogeneous screen and SiRi now understands Spanglish; Apple is making progress and the new iPhone 5 is simply Devolutionary.

Yes, because clearly your personal preference is the same phone that everyone wants.

"You like that phone? Too bad, you get what I like."

Great mentality you've got there, buddy.

His mentality is actually perfect for an Apple lover like him, very predictable and very narrow minded

Regular consumer = goes gaga for iPhone(for bragging lol)
Consumer with slight knowledge regarding technology = s3
Consumer with better knowledge regarding technology = 920

Techie consumer? Optimus G.

Im failing to see how this transition will somehow improve the employees productivity at work, but it is nice nonetheless that Yahoo is footing the bill and giving them a choice from a few phones, all of good quality.

Apparently, you didn't, they want workers to use the same phones as the consumers, last time I checked, not every yahoo user owns an iPhone.

I don't know if I should keep reading down. I have no clue why people are writing sentences that don't make any sense tonight. I'm guessing everyone is having mental fatigue.

Then by your incomprehensible sentence, we can conclude you are an iPhone user?

hey why the first part of the article only says iphone.... something is fishy

it's not fishy at all… she made a statement or something before saying how employees needed to switch to the iphone (she didnt mention other handsets)… she now decided to give her employees a broader range which I think is good as long as yahoo isn't adopting a particular mobile infrastructure

Yahoo may not be as big as Google but it's still widely used as a search engine and for mail services.

I'm with you on BB, I hope they make it but nothing short of a miracle with save them.

Yahoo! is more than a search engine. They have a broad range of services used by millions.
