JBQ moved on, and has quickly landed at Yahoo! as their new Senior Principal Engineer Working on Mobile Apps. He noted, via Twitter (not Google+), his excitement in his new role. Yahoo! definitely needs help with their mobile products, and who better than JBQ?

According to the official announcement posted by Mayer on Yahoo!’s corporate blog Yodel Anecdotal, the new Yahoo! e-mail client was redesigned with speed in mind. And if you try it out for yourself, you’ll find that it is indeed faster than the version that was available before the update. Also, there is now consistency in the look and feel of the e-mail client across all devices and platforms. So if you’ve already used it in the past but didn’t quite like the overall user experience, perhaps you will now.
