Ha, yeah, between Yahoo, HP, Nokia, RIM, and post-PS2 Sony we had a real race for the bottom during that decade. How so many companies could so mismanage market dominance just boggles the mind.
And now comes news of the Daily Mail also considering a purchase. What? What? What? Do they expect to make a profit on Tumblr or something? Anyway I can't imagine a better use for their money than buying a dying company with few if any lines of business that intersect with their own. Hopefully Yahoo drags the DM down with them.
