Disgruntled Yahoo Investors Suggest Different Paths Forward


Two Yahoo investors, acting independently, have publicly called for radical changes or a potential sale of the firm. Both Canyon Capital Advisors and SpringOwl Asset Management apparently were unappeased by last week’s announcement that Yahoo would spin off its core Internet business. Canyon Capital Advisors on Friday sent a letter to Yahoo Chairman Maynard Webb, urging the company to find a buyer for its core Internet businesses or to sell it the company outright. The letter chides the board for a lack of independence from top management.

Google turns on the world’s first modular smartphone, reveals more juicy details about Project Ara

project-ara-backside-google-io
At I/O 2014, Google has publicly turned on its modular Project Ara smartphone for the first time. Considering Project Ara nothing more than some pretty concept art back in October 2013, it’s impressive how quickly Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group has produced a working prototype. If all goes to plan, Google hopes to sell the modular Ara smartphone in 2015, starting at $50 for a bare-bones endoskeleton that you plug other modules into. During the ATAP tech session at I/O 2014, Ara chief Paul Eremenko also gave us lots of technical details about how to actually build a modular phone — no mean feat, as you can probably imagine.
