Yahoo overhaul will include new logo
SAN FRANCISCO, California (AFP) - Yahoo's push to re-invent itself will include a new logo to be introduced next month.
The faded Internet star's new symbol has been redesigned to better reflect what the company aims to be under chief executive Marissa Mayer, according to a blog post by chief marketing officer Kathy Savitt.
"We'll be keeping the colour purple, our iconic exclamation point and of course the famous yodel," Ms Savitt said.
"After all, some things never go out of style." Since former Google executive Mayer became boss at Yahoo early last year, the California company has snapped up 21 startups including the billion-dollar buy of blog platform Tumblr.
