I am not that sure about Quora. It might be too expensive.
Vimeo would be a must in my book, and Circa would be a great foray into mobile.
I don't think Path is for sale.
Flipboard and Circa are both interesting. News is a major consumption item on mobile, just like on the web.
"Search is a core daily habit for all of us and a fundamental user behavior, the top priority for Yahoo," she said. "We'll focus on reshaping Search, driving smart distribution deals and making organic investments to grow our market share. There's a clear upside potential here, and it's time now to execute against it...... Mayer will likely be courting search start-ups that can beef up Yahoo's algorithmic chops in the ad-tech space."When Mayer takes on Page on search, sparks will fly.
She has a better chance of competing with Google in the ad space than search. A number two position in search is pretty good too.
I am not familiar with Criteo, but if it is like Google AdWords, that would be swell.
