Yahoo Acquires Arab Online Community, Maktoob [news.cnet.com]
Yahoo has signed an agreement to buy Maktoob.com, the leading online community in the Arab world with more than 16.5 million users.

Through the acquisition announced Tuesday, Yahoo will join its own services with Maktoob.com's local content, providing people with Arabic-specific information and Arabic versions of Yahoo Messenger and Yahoo Mail.Popular in such countries as the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Kuwait, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia, Maktoob.com says it reaches one-third of those online in the Arab world.

Cool. Then I can hopefully start filing DMCA notifications with Yahoo! Maktoob has been a long time offender on our sites. Whew, that's good news.

"Access to information and communications tools can positively impact people's lives in many ways," Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz said in a statement

Does this mean Yahoo is officially a search engine again?

I saw that name for the first time a few days ago for the .CM auction (pre-order)

Didnt know the .com version was that popular. No wonder the names going for auction.
