Yahoo's new CEO wants the company to buy each employee an Apple iPhone
posted by Alan F. / Aug 21, 2012, 1:51 PM
Apple iPhone or Android handset as a second phone for personal use. Keeping all employees on a single platform might help boost productivity and all for the cost of about $2 million which is pocket change for the company. The benefit to Yahoo could easily more than make up the cost.
Mayer brought up the concept of corporate-paid iPhones for all at an executive staff meeting and there is some late word that she is open to the idea of giving employees the option of an Android model for all, instead. Regardless of which platform Yahoo decides on, the goal is to improve the bottom line which should make stockholders happy, not to mention the manufacturer that gets the business.

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.
