Yahoo's! board met on Sunday and approved the all-cash deal to buy one of the fastest growing social media sites on the web: an official announcement will be livestreamed from New York as soon as Monday afternoon.

ridiculous buying from yahoo once again. maybe trying to put together a 'nice' package for exit. yahoo's philosophy has never been about such profane things like current earnings. they suck so much, it's unbelievable.

what for? wasn't a company supposed to earn money? correct me if i'm wrong, but i still expect that as the ultimate goal as an entrepreneur. everything else till now was an expensive hobby by david karp. well ok, he at least finally earned big money, the craziness of it all.
but yahoo will have to bring it to market, in other words: push ads and pull user data. with that setup, good luck earning your billion back and profit from tumblr.
