This looks as if there's a shift back to mobile technology and search.

We have acquired SkyPhrase. The team of four has built amazing natural language processing technology and we’re excited to welcome them to our Yahoo Labs team in New York. Yahoo Acquires Natural Language Tech Company, SkyPhrase [yahoolabs.tumblr.com]

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.

A moot point as long as the default search on android devices can not be changed.

P.S.
They've crucified Microsoft for much less...
