More on Yahoo's CEO switch: The NYT reports Mayer, who was in charge of Google Maps, Earth, and Places, has resigned from Google (GOOG), and starts at Yahoo tomorrow. She claims one of her top priorities will be bringing in fresh talent to Yahoo, which has seen a huge brain drain. Mayer has an engineering background, and could embrace a different strategy than the media-focused Ross Levinsohn, who struck a flurry of content deals during his time as interim CEO.
