Video: The Byte - Yahoo starts fresh, Nokia layoffs, Chrome for Android 4.0, President Obama's science fair


The Byte - Yahoo starts fresh, Nokia layoffs, Chrome for Android 4.0, President Obama's science fair

 

More than half of Yahoo's board will be new, setting the stage for a fresh start for incoming CEO Scott Thompson.

Nokia will lay off 4,000 workers and move more of its production facilities to Asia before the end of 2012.

Google's Chrome browser will come to Android 4.0 devices and sync bookmarks and autocomplete data across devices.

At the White House Science Fair President Barack Obama launched a marshmallow with an eighth grader's air cannon.

 

Four Yahoo board members including its chairman will step down, as part of an ongoing effort to recover from a downward spiral. This follows the departure of co founder Jerry Yang and sets the stage for a fresh start for incoming CEO Scott Thompson. More than half the board will be new.

 

Nokia will lay off 4,000 workers and move more of its factories to Asia before the end of the year. The goal for the move is to become more competitive. Nokia is ramping up production of Windows Phones while the sale of Symbian phones is dropping faster than expected.  

 

Google's Chrome browser is coming to Android devices, but only for the 1% that run Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich. For users who also use chrome on their computers autocomplete and bookmarks will sync across devices, among other features.

 

At the White House Science Fair President Barack Obama helped an Arizona 8th grader named Joey pump up and shoot his air powered marshmallow launcher. At 30 psi the marshmallow can fly more than 150 ft.
