What's actually right about Yahoo's purchase of Summly: we are still talking about it, and are still reminded that Yahoo exists. The marketing was great (the video is really well-done), and to be honest yahoo really could use some marketing boost at a time like this.

I'm reminded Yahoo exists every time I check my false-negatives spam filter training file. Virtually all spam which gets through to my inbox is from Yahoo addresses, often from compromised actual people I need to receive mail from (including at least one partner at a fund, my dentist, etc.)
