10 of the funniest tweets around Marissa Mayer’s Yahoo! appointment

Today is Marissa Mayer’s first day on the job as Yahoo! CEO. Taking the wheel of an apparently sinking ship isn’t going to be an easy task, however upbeat Mayer herself might be about the decision.

Of course going from “employee number 20″ at one of the biggest tech companies on earth to heading up a company whose shares have gone into free fall, declining more than 40% in the last five years, was bound to draw reaction from Twitter.

In fact, nearly 12 hours after the announcement first broke, Mayer was still trending globally on Twitter:

We decided to give you a peek at some of the most entertaining tweets around one of tech’s biggest CEO appointments this year:

    If the S5 can prove us wrong, we may see an article in the reverse in the near future :)

    Like it does every year, it will again

    I believe the s5 comes with IP rating of 67 which is better than the z2. Also, I’ve yet to see that this phone comes with “boom sound” (not literally titled that because it is trademarked to HTC), may be mistaken though if I overlooked this. Also the US price hasn’t been announced, as prices for phones are different in every market. Quite biased article…but I do hope the z2 comes to the US soon!

    IP67 is not as good as IP55/58, it’s just a higher number (don’t know what the numbers actually mean) , the Samsung is only water resistant whereas the Sony is waterproof and dustproof.

    Please understand what you’re trying to say before you type misinformation.

    Samsung sheep will always be sheep just like Apple. step out of the cloud ppl the Z2 is a better built phone all over. but if you prefer plastic buy Samsung.

  • tpradebe

    I agree but I would rather buy Moto X, Nexus 5, HTC or Huawei before I buy Sony Z2

  • tpradebe

    What about Moto X, Nexus 5, HTC?

  • Art1318

    I live in the US and the S5 is widely available here, but Sony hasent even anounced if the Z2 will ever come to the states. I’m holding out on getting anything till i hear if we will be able to get the Z2 or see what the LG G3 has to offer. Hopefully i won’t have to wait much longer.

    Its simple.
    IP67 means Dust PROOF and Water RESISTANT
    IP58 Means Dust RESISTANT and Water PROOF (7 could be considered, but 8 is definitely better)
    First number indicates level of dust resistance
    Second number indicates level of water resistance.
    Both are good, but I trust Z2 design more, that giant O-ring on the S5 just looks like trouble (i.e. GS4 Active debacle).

    Search Google, S5 already breaking records after a weekend

    i would encourage LG G3 over Sony Z2, best Z2 feature is swimming

    Samsung’s new Android flagship comes with a built-in “Download Booster” mode that basically allows you to downloads large files (over 30MB) using both your Wi-Fi connection and cellular network at the same time, combining their bandwidth for zippier downloads. . This will come in handy, especially for users who are in a hurry to download a big file.

    Can any one suggest me, what should i buy, either samsung s5 or xperia z2. Drawback: if i change the backcover of s5, then if i dip into the water, then there will be no gaurantee/warranty. Email me on: chandra.research65@gmail.com
