Yahoo! Acquires SearchFox?

Google's Real Mission: Ad Dollars $$

I know, posting has been extremely light this week, as I’ve been thoroughly working on the new design (see below) but I can assure you it’s going to increase by 150% (possibly more) once this design is sorted. Anyway, Michael Arrington from TechCrunch broke the news this week that Yahoo! may have acquired SearchFox, a personalised news aggregator (like Findory) which is scheduled to close down in about a week or so.

I have to admit that I’m a tester for SearchFox and I absolutely love the app. It does what attention.xml was supposed to do, only difference being that it actually EXISTS and is not some hype. Oh, and it works as well. I’m not surprised Yahoo! bought this. Sure, I would’ve never predicted it but SearchFox is only one of the great examples of the Web 2.0 that I’d like there to exist.

As for their closing down, I’m not sure what Yahoo!’s planning with this one. Maybe they’re going to integrate it into My Yahoo! or maybe rebrand it as “Yahoo! Something” (replace something with cool name). But this does seem to be a good sign, as I have to admit I don’t exactly admire the name “SearchFox,” sounds much like a search plugin for Firefox. In any case, best wishes for the ‘Fox team.
