Marissa's Tumblr: Geeking Out on the Logo

marissamayr:

So, tonight we unveiled the new Yahoo logo, concluding our 30 days of change.

We hadn’t updated our logo in 18 years. Our brand, as represented by the logo, has been valued at as much as ~$10 billion dollars. So, while it was time for a change, it’s not something we could do lightly.

Tesla Is a Little Bit Apple, a Little Bit Google

parislemon:

Farhad Manjoo:

None of this means that Tesla should abandon its goal of building the world’s best electric cars. By competing on service, style, and the dependability of its vehicles, it can sell a lot of cars while also letting rivals use its core technology. But to be a great tech company, it’s no longer enough to just make great products. You’ve also got to let others build stuff on top of your technology—you’ve got to build a platform. Elon Musk gets this, and that’s why his company isn’t emulating just one tech behemoth. Tesla is Apple on the outside, but it’s Google at its core.

I love the concept of using your would-be rivals to build infrastructure for you.

"We’ve been preparing the watch product for so long."

Lee Young Hee, EVP of Samsung’s mobile business, told Bloomberg today. He continued, “We are working very hard to get ready for it. We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them.”

There are ways to hint at things and then there’s this. Not exactly the Apple approach…

"I’m super-glad we did Surface."

Steve Ballmer, talking to MIT Technology Review.

Filing away…

Also, read the question — it’s a non-answer.

A lot of gems here. Like:

All new consumer PCs are now Windows 8 based. So in that sense, I would say that here the adoption rate is perfect.

That’s one way to look at it. And:

Oh, I don’t know. Our number one thing is supplying products to consumers. That’s kind of what we do.

Kind of.

So. Many. Quotes.
