    Yahoo to Buy....

    Yahoo to Buy Oliphant for $71 million source say.

    Oliphant is a yet to be chartered company with no employees, no revenue, no technology, no business idea, and no business model.

    Sources say that Yahoo is paying the $71 million to an individual who, during a sleep study, dreamed up the idea of selling Oliphant to a major tech company.

    The dreamer in question will be introduced Monday morning on CNBC appearing with MM as Yahoo continues to acquire talent and do financially questionable things that still make it look Cool & Hip.

    Yahoo is rated a joke by Grey & Company.

    • Hahaha there was an article about that Summly purchase from some business writer that ripped into it. It had no revenue, less than 1M downloads, and licensed its algorithm to sum articles to 400 words from someone else. I'm creating one too as you've inspired me Grey...it's called Annoyingly! What does it do??? It will pre-read an article I click or post here to see if it makes sense or is dumb then will block it. Come across, a sports blogger writing about the Kardashians...POOF! its gone. Do you know how huge it is since Yahoo changed their privacy policy to stalk you with cookies on their front page? Since I don't have a working algo yet I'll sell it for $20M...$21M so $1M can go to actually making working product. Instead of the dumbing down of society it'll actually INCREASE it as you need each post needs to pass an "intelligence" threshold. Spammers will be gone too! Still_my_dime will like that:)
