In the News Yahoo is acquiring Tumblr, the microblogging and social networking website, for $1.1 billion USD. Tumblr offers little revenue but lots of eyeballs if Yahoo can monetarize them. Now Yahoo is bidding for Hulu, the streaming video service. After years of ineffective responses while Google, Facebook, and others took large chunks of the online advertising market, Yahoo is fighting back. Can Yahoo reignite the momentum it had at the turn of the century? What do you think?

If they do buy Hulu I hope they get rid of the ads on the paid Hulu Plus service. I would actually pay for it if they did... I know they have to make money so I'll deal with it without complaining when I'm using it for free, but I don't see the point in paying money to see commercials. That's why I don't have cable ;)
