On Thursday, we told you that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is fixated on buying hosting site Tumblr for $1 billion and according to people close to the situation, Yahoo's board is going to get together on Sunday (that's why they earn the big bucks) to discuss an all-cash $1.1 billion offer for Tumblr; sources in tune with Mayer's thinking say that Tumblr will be the property that Yahoo will use as the base for the company going forward...

I tend to agree. Yahoo! has a habit of screwing things up. If Tumblr doesn't get complete autonomy, it will be just the latest fail from Yahoo!.

I am using Tumblr to blog what I have in mind and I don't think that this is a good idea.

Hope it doesn't become bad acquisition like 'draw something' became for Zynga............. They should have purchased Instagaram, when there was time, and Nokia-Microsoft would have been begging them to develop it for their Platform, but Tumblr!!!!! Hope this doesn't become first dumb move from CEO Marissa.......

Say goodbye to all the wonderful posts you can see now versus how it will be once Yahoo takes over. I remember how good Geocities was before Yahoo took over and ruined that.
