Back to the basics for Yahoo

Yahoo's new CEO, Marissa Mayer, has a reputation for decisive action and the former Google staffer reckons the future of the company lies in a return to its tech roots instead of dabbling in digital media.

Marissa Mayer, who earned a reputation for decisive action and intensity during her 13-year stint at Google Inc, has spent her first months as Yahoo Inc CEO quietly moving the internet pioneer back to its roots in technology.

Long torn between whether it should focus on media content or on tools and technologies, Yahoo under Mayer is being positioned firmly in the latter camp, according to sources inside and outside the company.
