Yahoo buys Blink, a secret messaging app founded by an ex-Googler
Although Blink itself isn't a wildly powerful Snapchat competitor, it does enjoy a user-base of anywhere between 10 000 to 50 000, which is no small feat for an app that probably saw minimum advertising. Meh Labs was founded by ex-Googler Kevin Stephens and has seven employees, which will now join Yahoo.

Yahoo, the place where your startup eventually dies in corporate...and never to be seen again.

yes because the law made them sell...welcome to the world where the idea of selling your company is actually a dream, not a bad thing.

I smell Yahoo! sourcing for an operating system. Those companies they bought have outright good tech databases.
