That'd be horrible, I think. I had in mind something more holographic, but solid feeling -- if that makes sense!

A couple of those things floated around a year or two ago. They were robots that allowed a telecommuter or a distance manager two take a virtual walk around the office via a robot. The robot displayed the employee's photo from a remote camera and the remote worker could see what was in front of the robot as it rolled around the office. I like to think of it as "Boss in the Box". Here's a link to one.

Jim, maybe it can come up with some sort of human virtualization technology -- letting workers stay at home physically but be virtually present in the office. I'd like to be a fly on the wall when a developer suggests that one to Mayer.

Beth, you don't have to come up with the great idea. That's why Mayer et al make the big bucks. I know, if mobile fails Yahoo could sell tools for the telecommuter.....oops, I guess they don't know how to spell that one.

Well, let's see -- driverless cars are taken, as are package-delivering drones, and smart contact lens. I'm scratching my head here.

That's a pretty good size amount for a firm, though I think when we see higher amounts, the buzz about a consolidation era among analytics vendors will grow.  i don't think we are fully there, but there has been speculation in some instances.

There now are indications that the price for Flurry ended up in the $200 to $300 million range

I guess we will see in the future. It is clear that they need to do something or they will lose relevancy.

Right, Yahoo has to try to make its mark in mobility because if it didn't do something it was in real trouble. I wonder what else they could have done that might have been more innovative.

Hi Jim. It might be me-too, but better that than "who's that?" Can Yahoo last in the long run if it doesn't do all it can on mobility? (It might not be able to anyways, but it's gotta try.)
