Yahoo's new CEO wants the company to buy each employee an Apple iPhone

The new CEO at Yahoo, Marissa Mayer, is an ex-Google employee so you would think that to bring all employees together using one smartphone, it would be an Android model; instead, Mayer wants Yahoo to buy all employees an Apple iPhone...

its getting too old
every person what he likes
there I will say it
I Like Nokia
what is the problem?
using old hardware
big deal
as long as it gets me what i need
I need nokia for the camera mostly
And Belle FP1 is good for a 1 core phone
but yes there are flaws like being slow most times
and no flash
but the iphone doesnt have flash so
so please android lovers im not saying Nokia is better at everything but just the things I need
its strong build quality and has a great camera that is enough
I used an android for months untill it broke
now I'm with the old Nokia C6-01
and even though its bulky its a good fit in the hand
the camera is good enough

Love has nothing to do with it, she's just bitter; nothing worse than a single bitter woman (out to get even).

Doesn't even have Bluetooth file transfer. I don't understand why anyone would use ANY Apple touchscreen device for anything even RELATING to work and school.

Lmao, android and their loyalists mad because a ceo of a company doesn't wanna use android. Y'all are to much! Get over it! Not everyone wants to use android and not everyone wants to use Apple.

so basically the new CEO is an Apple fanboy, instead of letting employees use whatever platform suits them best, they all have to use the same platform. Seems an apple fanboy's way of thinking.

Having one consistent platform across the company makes a lot of sense. A hodgepodge of Android and iPhone could cause problems if not everyone has the same apps available to them.

It make sense if the company employee is not IT savvy. Using mobile techology such as android and iphone would increase productivity.

For a new CEO to justify a 2 million expense in a young and hi-tech company with many employee already using blackberry,would be rather disruptive.

They can easily chose an Android smartphone which is going to be cheaper than a iPhone and business tailor apps for productivity. The whole iPhone thing is based on her personal preference.
