A One, Two Punch for Yahoo! →

Ben makes a great case that Yahoo should acquire both 500px and DuckDuckGo. I agree with him on both accounts.

The best thing about DuckDuckGo (besides improving that horrible name) is that it would provide a nice alternative to Google that could be used on the iPhone.

I’m really pulling for Marissa Mayer to turn Yahoo around, and I think that making these acquisitions would be a great way for them to start.

As a side note, I would like to recommend that you think about becoming a member of Ben Brook’s site. He recently made a change to his site to be completely reader supported. He did this by removing every ad from his site.

I always liked his writing before, but I think it is even better now that it was before. Only $4 a month.
