Yahoo Products Must Now Ship In 6 Months

According to Nicholas Carlson of Business Insider, Marissa Mayer is laying down the laws at Yahoo1:

Mayer’s rule: If a new product can’t be shipped in six months, and if it doesn’t have a realistic shot of reaching 100 million users or generate $100 million toward the company’s top line, then Yahoo will no longer bother.

That’s a steep goal. I’m assuming that this means that there will be no more new products from Yahoo in the near future, only big updates to current high-ranking products.2

  2. I sincerely hope this means that Flickr will be getting a huge overhaul. I’ve tried 500px, but I still prefer Flickr. ↩︎
