Yahoo appoints new chief technology officer

Former Yahoo Chief Architect Raymie Stata takes on a new role as company CTO

Consumer Web portal company Yahoo has appointed a new chief technology officer, with former Chief Architect Raymie Stata taking on the role immediately, Yahoo announced Thursday.

The former CTO, Farzad Nazem, stepped down in April.

In his new role, Stata will oversee all of Yahoo's advanced technologies and drive the technical direction of the company.

Hired by Yahoo in 2004, Stata, as chief architect, was instrumental in defining the company's search strategy, as well as development of its new advertising platform and move to a cloud computing-based infrastructure.

According to the company, Stata will work with Chief Product Officer Blake Irving and Chief Scientist Prabhakar Raghavan.

No doubt Stata will have a tough job ahead of him, as the company has experienced flagging user engagement recently.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
