Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer said her top priority is to get the company serious about mobile. And she was clearly not joking.
On Tuesday, Yahoo snapped up a five-person mobile start-up called OnTheAir. It was the second deal Mayer struck to beef up Yahoo’s ability to target smartphones and tablets. The acquisition, like that of New York mobile start-up Stamped before it, was mainly aimed at picking up engineering talent.
