Oh, Yahoo. Why won't you just go away already.

Those are my thoughts.

Also, the guy who made Tumblr must be literally rolling in dough. Isn't he only 23?

I get that, admittedly Yahoo Finance has pulled me through 3 years of a degree, but I don't know anyone who uses their search function.

People on Tumblr are really mad about this because it will attract new members and ruin it. Tumblr ruined itself already, though. (Why do I still use it, then? )

Smart on them for trying to remain relevant, although I don't look forward to all of the imminent advertising.

Just like everyone said that FB buying instagram would change it and ruin it.

And nothing happened.

Fair enough, I had no idea, and I never realised that the unreliable Apple weather service was by them.

I made an instagram after that happened, so I never had to deal with the complaining. Thank God.
