Adam Cahan joined Yahoo in 2011 when his startup, the TV companion app IntoNow, was acquired. A year later, Marissa Mayer became CEO, and soon after she put him in charge of the company's lineup of mobile products. Over the next several months, Cahan oversaw an upgrade to nearly Yahoo's entire line of mobile products, starting with the critically acclaimed Yahoo Weather app.

This week, Cahan was on hand for the company's first-ever keynote presentation at CES, where he came on stage to talk about Yahoo's efforts with smart TVs. Afterward, we caught up with him to discuss the company's latest mobile priorities: Yahoo News Digest, its acquisition of Android homescreen replacement Aviate, and much more.
