This looks as if there's a shift back to mobile technology and search.
|We are excited to join Yahoo Labs to continue to work on our shared vision of making computers deeply understand people's natural language and intentions. |

Is Yahoo getting back in the search game at some point?

It does, indeed look as if it's one of the goals. I suspect mobile is the target with this acquisition, enabling better voice search, from whatever index is being used.
We really could use another search player.

I really don't think you could describe the present state of search more accurately.
