Yahoo CIO departs

Michael Kirwan is the latest executive to leave Yahoo

In another high-profile departure, Michael Kirwan, formerly CIO of Yahoo, has left the company.

The move was first reported by the AllThingsD blog on Thursday.

In a short note, Yahoo confirmed that Kirwan is no longer with the company. It said that David Dibble, executive vice president of service engineering and operations for Yahoo, will take on Kirwan's responsibilities. Dibble was Kirwan's manager, the company said.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Kirwan started working for Yahoo in July 2009. His bio does not appear to be available anymore on Yahoo's website.

Other recent notable departures from Yahoo include Hilary Schneider, who ran the company's North American business, and David Ko, who was the head of Yahoo's audience group.

Yahoo has struggled to gain momentum after a failed takeover attempt by Microsoft last year and changes in leadership, including the replacement of Jerry Yang, who founded the company and had served as CEO. Yang now serves on the board.

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.
